Stuffed vegetables is a traditional Egyptian recipe (it is called Mahshi, in Arabic), but the ingredients are easy to find in Portugal or anywhere in the world. The difference may be in the size of the vegetables, which in this case the eggplant and courgette (or zucchini) used in this recipe are the smallest. But it can be made with normal-sized vegetables. Or any other type of vegetables, such as peppers, tomatoes, kale leaves or even vine leaves (see the recipe for stuffed vine leaves here).
This recipe can also be easily adapted to a vegan or vegetarian diet, replacing chicken broth with vegetable broth
