Lebanese Kusa spiced up with Garlic Chili EVOO

5-6 Yellow squash, cut in half and gently cored, using a melon baller

1 bunch of mint

1 lb of ground turkey or ground pork ( lean meat is preferred)

6 garlic cloves

3/4 cup of white long rice ( uncooked)

1 can of tomato paste

1 can of crushed tomatoes

1 tsp of cumin, cinnamon

2 tsp of salt

2 tbsp of Ella's Olive Garlic Chili EVOO


1. In a food processor, combine mint, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, salt, and process to create a paste

2. Add the paste (reserving 1 tbsp for sauce) and rice to the meat and mix well

3 Stuff squash loosely, using up all filling.

4. In a pressure cooker, add reserved herbed paste with Ella's Olive Garlic Chili EVOO, sauté for approx. 2 min

5. Add tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, and 2 cups of water. Mix to create tomato sauce and bring to simmer.

6. Add stuffed squash carefully. Make sure it is at least 1/2 submerged into the sauce.
