Eggy Blue Rice Is The Edible Flower Recipe We Never Knew We Needed

I’ve always thought flowers in food were not more than an aesthetic garnish. Boy, was I wrong. Turns out there’s so much you can do with flowers in cooking, which leads me to this month’s Foodbeast Recipe Challenge. 

The crew was tasked with creating stunning dishes using FLOWERS. Man, did they deliver. 

Behold, Foodbeast’s resident Pokemon Professor, Constantine Spyrou (@constantine_spy), used Butterfly Pea Flower to make Blue Rice and topped it with a salt-cured egg yolk

The resulting contrast is breathtaking. Check out the video to see how Constantine pulled off this fantastic recipe, along with all the other entries from our talented batch of creators!

Other competitors in the flower recipe challenge include Oscar (@oscaroni), who made a layered Flor de Calabaza Quesadilla, Brenda (@gg the garden girl)​ , who made Edible Flower Jellies, Priyanka (@chefpriyanka) with her Rose Cardamom Gulab Jamuns, and Farrah (@Spiced Nice​), who crafted some sweet Truffles with Rose White Chocolate
