Stuffed vegetables recipes are found in all parts of the world. Considered the symbol of summer because of its vibrant colors, the Greek variation of gemista (“stuffed with”) calls mainly for tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchinis, and eggplants. Though it’s known as a super healthy and juicy vegan dish, you can always add minced meat into the stuffing should you require a boost of protein. For extra taste, try crumbling feta cheese on top.
