How to Make It

Step

In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter in the oil over moderate heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, until softened but not browned, about 1 minute. Stir in the rice and cook until it begins to turn opaque, about 2 minutes. Add the squash blossoms, stock and 1 cup of water. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Serve hot
