    Ingredients :

  • ¼ pound ground lamb
  • ¼ cup basmati rice
  • 2 cups tomato puree, divided
  • ½ teaspoon dried mint
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 pounds small zucchini or yellow squash
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon dried mint
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Mix together the ground lamb, basmati rice, 2 tablespoons tomato puree, 1/2 teaspoon mint, salt, and pepper; mix well, and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Slice the ends off of the zucchinis and hollow out the centers using an apple corer. Stuff with lamb mixture.

  • Step 3

    Stir together the remaining tomato puree with 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large skillet. Place the stuffed zucchini into the sauce, and add enough water to cover the zucchini. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.
