Risotto Stuffed Baked Mediterranean Vegetables


These baked vegetables always bring back memories of the beachside bars in #Santorini cooked in wood fired pizza ovens, the vegetables would change daily but always tasted fabulous, a great way to spend lunch in the shade and enjoy a couple of bottles of wine!
