Stuffed Onions Spaghetti


I watched a video on YouTube that was all about a variety of different onion dishes.  I was inspired to experiment making stuffed onions.  I found a recipe online but didn't have all the ingredients it called for, so made some substitutions like ground turkey for lamb, dried parsley for fresh parsley and mint, brown rice for white rice, and cumin for baharat.  I had never even heard of baharat before and had to google what could be used in place for it.

The process was tedious, peeling the layers and wrapping each one up.  Needless to say, I did not like the taste and the cook time was not enough because the rice inside was still crunchy.  Additionally, I don't care for cinnamon spice in savory dishes.

The next morning, I attempted to change the flavor profile by making a spaghetti and having the stuffed onions act as the meatballs.  The spaghetti was fine, the onion layers too, but the stuffing still didn't sit well with me.  I am not trying this again.

Watch me prepare this experiment.
