Mahshi is a favorite hit amongst Egyptians and great for vegetarian travelers.
Mahshi is basically vegetables of choice stuffed with a rice filling, such as zucchini, eggplants, bell peppers, tomatoes, cabbage leaves, or grapevine leaves.
The filling consists of rice, herbs (parsley, cilantro, and dill), tomato sauce with seasoning, and a touch of cinnamon. Some people like to add minced meat to the filling for a generous meal.
Mahshi is definitely a dish you have to try when in Egypt. You will fall in love, it’s one of my favorites!
