Mellas Family Lamb Stuffed Zucchini (Koosa)

Directions

Share

Ingredients :

  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1 (28 ounce) can chopped tomatoes with juice
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • ¾ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • ¾ cup basmati rice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons dried mint
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • Methods :

  • Cut each zucchini in half and use a thin, sharp knife to hollow out each section, removing the seeds and leaving a round 1/2 inch shell.
  • Combine tomatoes with juice, tomato paste, 3/4 cup water, and cinnamon in a large, oven-safe Dutch oven. Bring to a simmer over medium heat; cook until thick, about 20 minutes.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a small skillet. Stir in onion; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Combine cooked onion, lamb, rice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1/2 cup water, dried mint, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well. Lightly stuff lamb mixture into hollowed out zucchini sections. Place stuffed zucchini in simmering tomato sauce.
  • Cover pot and place in preheated oven. Cook until the rice is soft, about 1 hour. If sauce is very thin, simmer on the stove top until desired consistency. To serve, slice into 1 inch rounds and top with tomato sauce.
