Mihshi comes from the Arabic verb that means to stuff, denoting a preparation of food that is stuffed.

Many of you know that David is not the gourmet in the family. But he can prepare a few Lebanese dishes that are quite tasty. Making stuffed vegetables is very easy. You can stuff just about any vegetable: yellow squash, zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers, tomatoes or potatoes. Essentially you mix together meat, sauteed onions, cinnamon, uncooked rice and diced tomatoes (or tomato sauce if you don't like chunks). Then you stuff the that mixture into your hollowed out veggies. Top with more tomatoes and some water and bake forever!

The end result is delicious. We did a mixture of Roly Poly Squash and Lavender Eggplant. Top your meal with some plain Greek yogurt. Yum!
