Walnuts, feta, and lemon in the filling, and sweet, juicy currants in the tomato sauce, fragrant with sherry and cinnamon. All this adds up to an anything but bland zucchini dish, true to its Greek lineage. Straight from the Moosewood Restaraunt New Classic cookbook! Serve this with a crisp cucumber salad and some Provencal Olives, Braised Olives in Tomato Sauce, or Kalamata Olives with Roasted Garlic for a meal that is complete! Enjoy!
Zucchini and lamb were made for each other. Garlic, mint, oregano, and rosemary are mixed with pine nuts and currants to spice up the lamb filling, and are all baked together in zucchini shells. Opa! From the New Basics Cookbook.
This thick Greek garlic sauce makes a yummy dip to be served with vegetables, pita bread,or along with fish or chicken. Don't use a food processor or an electric mixer, which can make potatoes gluey.
