Winter Mehshi

Mehshi Kousa Wa Batenjen (stuffed zucchini and eggplants) is a perfect winter meal (see Recipe HERE).

So whenever I find those nice Lebanese zucchinis and small eggplants, I am all for making mehshi; specially that, in winter, I have a nice natural fridge outside to keep my vegetables fresh.

Emptying the vegetables to prepare them for stuffing is a very stress releasing activity. And the stuffing does not go to waste (more on this later).

The stuffing is cooked on low heat with onions, garlic and olive oil - a perfect appetizer.

Yogurt also goes well with mehshi; but nothing beats just soaking it with the tomato sauce it cooks in and indulging.
