Late spring heralds the arrival of the young courgettes with their pretty pale-green and yellow flowers, both of which Turkish cooks are always eager to stuff. In Istanbul the flowers are often stuffed with a rice and meat mixture, and in parts of Anatolia they are filled with bulgur. This delicately flavoured recipe from Bolu omits meat.
