You could use any veggies you like for this recipe. Instead of rice you can stuff it with cooked mince. Serve as a side dish. Prep and cooking time I am guessing. There would be some rice mixture left over, I normally add it in between the veggies and bake it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Top and core insides of veggies.
  2. Wash rice and drain. Chop herbs very small; wash in a sieve and allow to drain.
  3. Chop tomato.
  4. Mix rice, herbs and tomato.
  5. Add spices to rice mixture.
  6. Fill veggies with the rice mixture 3/4 full (allow space for rice to expand).
  7. Heat chicken broth cube, ghee and mastikah until mastikah melts.
  8. Layer veggies in a flat pot or baking tin.
  9. Add chicken broth mixture to veggies and allow to come to the boil on the stove top.
  10. Bake covered at 180°C until veggies are tender. (we like our veggies very soft, I bake it for 1 hr 15 mins).
