Good morning my friends and happy Sunday, today one of the greatest foods of Greek kitchen, it’s not so easy at cooking but believe the results will give you something great . Let’s do this together step by step
400 gr. tomato juice
250 gr. glutinous rice
5 tomatoes, ripe
5 green peppers
2 onions, finely chopped
2 sk. garlic, finely chopped
10-12 mint leaves, finely chopped
10 basil leaves, finely chopped
Or a bunch of parsley, finely chopped
100 ml olive oil
150-200 ml of water, lukewarm
Rinse the tomatoes, peppers and with a knife cut the stalks from their bases.
Then, with a spoon, clean the flesh from the tomatoes, throw them in a multi and mash. The spores from the peppers are simply removed by hand (if we wish to use them, we also add them in the multi).
Then, cut the underside of the vegetables a little, so that a base is created so that they can stand. Once cut, place them in a large oven pan measuring 30x26 cm.
In a large bowl, add the onion, garlic, fresh tomatoes, rice, herbs, tomato juice, 50 ml olive oil and mix well with a tablespoon.
Immediately after, we fill our vegetables with the rice with a tablespoon and whatever excess filling we add to the pan scattered. Pour in the pan a little olive oil, lukewarm water and season with salt and pepper.
Finally, cover the stuffing with their stalks, wrap the pan with foil and bake in a preheated oven at 170 ° C in the air for 1 hour and 30 minutes. During the last 15 minutes of baking, remove the foil.
Once the stuffing is ready, remove it from the oven, let it cool for 10 minutes and then serve.
That’s all, hope you try it and enjoy this amazing food.
Stay safe and healthy my friends and take care of your people
