Soy sauce
Black pepper
Boil the potatoes in salted water, drain, peel and cut into cubes. Gently open the zucchini flowers and remove the pistil by cutting it at the base. Pass the flowers under running water, then pat them with absorbent paper, always proceed very gently so as not to break the flowers. Finely slice 4 flowers, keep the others aside. Clean and dice the zucchini. Chop the shallot and brown it in a pan with extra virgin olive oil. Add the zucchini, a teaspoon of tamari sauce, mix and cook for ten minutes over medium heat, when there are a few minutes left to cook, add the 4 zucchini flowers cut into strips. Separately, mash the potatoes, add the egg beaten lightly with a fork, the crumbled feta cheese and the aromatic herbs, mix. Incorporate the zucchini and shallots, season with black pepper. Stuff the flowers kept aside with the prepared mixture, close in a bundle and put three flowers on each skewer. Arrange the skewers on a baking sheet covered with baking paper, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and bake at 200° C for 15 minutes, taking care to turn the pan halfway through cooking. Serve with a valerian salad enriched with tomatoes, olives and capers.
