Chive Blossom Focaccia

As I mentioned in a previous post, our Chives blossomed like crazy this year! So it only seemed right that we go a little Chive Blossom crazy. I added them to salads, pasta, Chive Blossom Vinegar, and of course focaccia. If you've never tasted a chive blossom you're in for a treat, they have a delightfully floral, light oniony flavor. The perfect flavor for this crispy, light and airy summer focaccia!

Chive Blossom Focaccia

Cooking for Kishore

Chive Blossom FoccaciaIngredients

  • 12 Chive Blossoms, cleaned
  • 3.5 cups Unbleached AP Flour
  • 1.5 cups Warm Water
  • 1 Tbsp Instant Yeast
  • 6 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1.5 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1.5 tsp Chives, Chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Salt


  1. Cut the Chive blossom directly below the flower, clean in cool water to remove any dirt or insects and set aside. Lightly grease a 9" x 13" glass pan with about 2 tbsp olive oil.
  2. Combine flour, instant yeast, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbsp olive oil and water, mix well until you get a sticky batter. Scoop the batter into the prepared pan, spread it to the corners evenly, cover the pan with plastic wrap, and let it rise at room temperature for 60 minutes. While the dough is rising, preheat the oven to 375F.
  3. Poke the dough all over with your fingers, making sure to hit the bottom of the pan. Place your cleaned chive blossoms equally on top, sprinkle with the chopped chives, and sea salt. Then drizzle it with olive oil. Bake until it's golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. Remove it from the oven, wait 5 minutes, then turn it out of the pan onto a rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
