I love this recipe!!! I'm making it for my mother in law this week because she's fasting

  • 6 large tomatoes
  • 6 large peppers
  • 4 large potatoes peeled and cut into 6 slices each
  • 2 tsp ketchup
  • 2 tsp tomato paste
  • 1 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 finely chopped medium onion
  • 1 1/2 cup rice
  • 2/3 cup chopped parsley
  • Pepper and Salt to taste

Here is what the end result will look like (minus the meat), all you need to do is make the stuffing, hollow out the veggies and put it in the oven!

I've never had gemista with ketchup, but then again, it seems like Greeks like to put ketchup on a lot of things (e.g. pizza and pasta) so it doesn't surprise me.

They also tend to over do it with the mustard sometimes... not my favorite

This is one of my favorite fasting meals. Instead of parsley, I like to add spearmint when I have it fresh in my garden. I like the way spearmint freshens it up!

Greek fries are the best for a get together!

I like to buy frozen fries and make these at home in the oven by sprinkling some feta on top!!! So easy and too good :)

Is it possible to use ground pork or lamb for Greek ground beef recipes?

Im not a huge fan of ground beef sometimes and I like to switch up the types of protein that I use. Has anyone tried making pastitsio or gemista with pork or lamb for example? How was it?

What is more traditional? Dolmades (grape leaves) or lahanodolmades?

Is either of them more traditional? I would like to try making one of them this weekend :)
