Gemista, is one of the best Greek summer dishes, which are usually stuffed with rice and aromatic herbs. Some times they also add some ground meat as well combined with rice. In this recipe, instead of using ground meat, I used sausages.
Gemista (pronounced as ye-mi-STA), are Greek stuffed tomatoes and peppers filled with rice and herbs, baked in a tomato sauce. Between the gaps of the vegetables we add potatoes which absorb all the wonderful flavours of the vegetables. As potatoes need more time to bake, we must cut them into thin wedges about twice the size of potato chips.
“Gemista” means stuffed vegetables. This is one of the most popular Greek vegetarian summer dishes.
