Posted by elmoute 05/06/2018 0 COMMENTS RECIPES,


•    6 tomatoes
•    6 peppers
•    6 aubergines
•    1 handful of peppermint
•    3 big onions
•    Half a garlic (3-4 cloves)
•    Salt and pepper
•    About 500 grams rice
•    ½ teacup of virgin olive oil

We empty the peppers, tomatoes and the aubergines (with a spoon). We finely chop the insides of these vegetables and mix them with the rice and the finely chopped garlic, onion and peppermint.
We season with salt and pepper and then finely chop 3 more peppers and add them to the mixture. We add the olive oil; we blend and use the mixture to fill the tomatoes, peppers and aubergines. We place them in a pan and put them in the oven. At first, we bake at 180 C and when they are golden brown we cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour at 250 C until the filling is baked. They are served either hot or cold.
