It is not possible to talk about the Mediterranean diet and Greek food without mentioning Gemista (Stuffed vegetables).
This is a classic vegetarian summer Greek dish found in households, tavernas and restaurants all over the country.
Gemista are vegetables usually tomatoes and bell peppers – although you can fill courgettes and aubergines also – filled with rice and baked in the oven. Gemista translates as “filled with”.
There are variations to this dish, as some prefer to stuff the vegetables with meat-based sauce, however you cannot really beat the vegetarian version. It’s just a delicious and healthy dish.

Every time I cook this dish it feels like my mum is next to me! She would always say, ”remember to cook the meat until is very soft, so cook it as long as it needs before adding the kritharaki,” and she would always serve it with crumbled feta stirred in at the end so that the feta would melt a little bit. That’s the way I used to eat it when I was a kid and I still do the same now.
Hope you enjoy it…it’s a great, tasty and simple dish!
