Kousa Mahshi (Palestinian stuffed zucchini)

The longer we’re in Jerusalem, more in love I fall with the incredibly varied cuisine here. And like many international cuisines, no matter where the source, traditional recipes are long and labor intensive. I’m making an effort to learn one recipe a week, integrating it into my weekly paleo cook-up. Sometimes, as with a recent experiment with maqluba, I simply say to hell with paleo!

Zucchini Pancakes

Yesterday’s CSA came with a couple kilos of zucchinis. I hadn’t even finished last week’s batch, and started panicking about how I was going to use up all these zucchinis. Yes, it’s true, my CSA has become a source of stress in my life as I struggle to use up all of the vegetables each week. For example, I currently have five (!) eggplants sitting in my fridge. Also, over...
