2 T. Calendula-Infused Oil or extra-virgin olive oil

2 small yellow squash or zucchini, chopped

1 red onion, chopped

1/2 C. summer herb flowers or petals, fresh or dried

12 large eggs

1 C. milk

1 C. heavy whipping cream (36% butterfat)

1/2 C. Pesto or chopped fresh basil

1 tsp. sea salt

8 ounces chilled soft goat cheese, broken into small pieces

1/2 C. chopped green or black olives

1 loaf country-style bread, torn into 1-inch pieces

1/2 C. grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly oil a 13 x 9-inch baking pan. In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté squash and onions for 5 minutes or until soft. Stir in flowers and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream, pesto, and salt. Toss goat cheese and olives with the cooled squash mixture. Spread bread cubes in one layer in the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Spread squash mixture evenly over the bread, and pour egg mixture over top of vegetables. Sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting and serving. NOTE: Use calendula, rose, violet, bergamot, borage, or any other organic edible flowers.
