Kusa Mihshi

May/June 2007

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (7 votes)

If you have a large Middle Eastern population in your area, you might actually find squash called kusa (or cusa) or tatuma in your market. Sauté the leftover zucchini with some chopped onion and tomato for a delicious omelet filling.

I have had this several times before and actually have a recipe from an egyptian friend but tried this one anyway. I used ground turkey instead of the lamb. If I make this recipe again, I would at a minimum, double the spices and maybe even triple the cumin. You couldnt even taste the spices in this version. I used regular brown rice and needed to cook it for 90 minutes to get the rice cooked. The zucchini did not get mushy. With more spices I would rate this as 4 star.

I made a vegetarian version of this by using tempeh instead of lamb. I sauteed the tempeh with onion and garlic and added 1/4 c each dried currants and slivered almonds. I used fresh marjoram and mint, a total of about 2 tbs each. There is more upfront time, but you don't need to bake as long, just long enough to get everything hot through to the center.
