1 medium carrot, grated

5 spring onions, finely-chopped

½ bunch of dill or fennel, finely-chopped

12–15 spearmint leaves, finely-chopped

1 large tomato, grated

700g vegetable broth

For the flowers:

Heat the oil in a frying pan.

Add the onion, spring onions, carrot and courgette, and sauté for a few minutes, until withered.

Add the rice.

Stir until glazy, and then remove from heat.

Add the dill, spearmint, salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.

Stir and set aside.

Rinse the flowers and remove the sprouts from inside of them.

Fill each flower with the filling to just below the middle, and fold the leaves.

Place the flowers in a shallow pot, the one next to the other, their folded side facing down.

Add the tomato, the broth, and a little salt and pepper.

Cover with a plate, and then close the pot with its lid.

Allow to cook for about 30 minutes on medium heat.
