Yemista is a traditional Greek dish consisting of vegetables, usually tomatoes, courgettes, aubergines or peppers, hollowed out and baked with a rice and herb filling or minced meat. The dish is prepared by cutting the tops of the vegetables, gutting them, then mixing the insides with rice and herbs, optional ground beef or lamb. The filled vegetables are placed in a pan alongside potatoes, dressed with some olive oil and tomato sauce and baked. When is ready, the dish is left in the oven for almost an hour to "mellow" before eating. The dish is served warm with wedges of lemon, feta cheese, crusty bread and chips (optional). Yemista is the best meal for vegetarians but can also be prepared using meat so is great for all. It is flavorful and mouth-wateringly delicious!
