"This dish is one of those the typical Greek housewife makes whenever the extended family is gathered, children come home from college, or a loved one visits. It is serious comfort food, and among those that represent the idea of 'mother' and 'family' in the Greek mind." — Gracey

uncooked white rice
zucchini, ends trimmed
garlic, finely chopped
chopped fresh mint
chopped fresh parsley
salt and ground black pepper to taste
It was quite tasty, but a little dry. Maybe it was the meat I used. It had very little fat in it. Husband enjoyed the unusual flavour of the mint in such a beefy dish. Easy to prepare for an evening meal.
I love all the ingredients in this recipe, but I did not enjoy this dish. The final product came out soggy and bland. It was not unpleasant so I think I may tamper with cooking process by baking the stuffed zucchini in the oven, add more spices and veggies.
