Dear fellow food-lover,

Stuffed vegetables have a long tradition in many Mediterranean countries. Greeks, Sicilians, Lebanese, Turks, Egyptians, and the Cypriots might argue that their version of a given stuffed vegetable dish is best and claim its origin as their own, but in reality, stuffing vegetables is a common preparation shared widely in the Mediterranean.

With plenty of vegetables in season, September is the perfect time to perfect (or try for the first time) stuffed Mediterranean delights. Get started with our latest blog and then try the recipes below!
