Gemista is always a crowd-pleaser and a very popular recipe that uses commonly available ingredients. A traditional Greek dish of stuffed fresh vegetables, full of flavours and vibrant colours! There is a variety of different ways to cook Gemista, but all of them have rice and herbs in common. They are made either with ground beef or without and they are served as an appetizer, side dish or main course. For us, it is always the main course, accompanied by feta cheese and fresh bread. 😋

  • For the filling
  • To assemble

Once you slice and empty the tomatoes, turn them upside down inside the baking pan to drain their liquids while preparing the filling.

It’s best to use ripe tomatoes because it’s easier to remove their flesh.

Depending on the size of the vegetables, there may be some left over filling. Wrap it in a piece of baking paper and baking along with the vegetables.
