zucchini flowers - some new ideas, please

kate | May 12, 200507:47 PM

Everywhere I look bunches of riotous yellow squash and zucchini flowers are on sale. I have tried in the past a greek dish, which involved par-cooking tomatoey rice and then baking it in the flowers, which was quite disappointing (the flowers seemed totally superfluous)

Does anyone have any useful, different applications for them?
Someone suggested I fold the chopped petals into an omlette, but I don't know if this is for looks instead of taste. Do they even have a taste???

I'm not particularly interested in deep frying them.
