Cooking with Olives
Steamed Mussels with Stuffed Chalkidiki Olives
- 8 large yellow onions
- 1 pomegranate (the seeds)
- 7 oz (200 g) haloumi or feta cheese, coarsely grated
- 1 tsp fennel seeds
- ½ Cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons green olives cut into rings
- 1 clove of garlic, pressed
- Salt – pepper
Peel the onions. Cut off the tops and scoop out the core (as you would do with stuffed tomatoes), save at least two layers. Chop the onion cores. Transfer olives into a frying pan, add the chopped onion and braise for 2-3 minutes until the onion is golden. Add the cheese, the fennel, the olives, the pomegranate seeds, the garlic, salt and pepper. Leave on the burner for one to two minutes to allow the tastes to marry. Fill the onions with the mixture and place them on a baking sheet. Bake on medium heat for 15 minutes. Serve warm.
