Stuffed onion:
Ingredients:
4-5 extra-large onions 
2 chopped tomatoes
2 cup brown rice
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ras el hanut
kosher or sea salt& black pepper ( sprinkle) 
1 bunch cilantro or parsley (reserve some for garnish)
1 pound ground meat of your choice (original recipe uses lamb we did turkey) 
3 pinches of sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
Directions:
🔸 cook brown rice starting by sauté onion on medium high heat, when onion are golden add rice and sprinkle spices ( all spices, cumin salt and pepper) 5 minutes before the rice is done add green herbs and mix it well
🔸Make a cut down one side of each of the onions, cutting into the center from top to bottom. This helps the onion layers cook evenly and make it easier to peel. Add the onions, and let them cook for 15-20 minutes
🔸 on a medium high skillet, infused olive oil with a sprinkle of all the spices, sauté onions until they are golden , add ground turkey and mix well ( optional for kids , I eat it the rice only stuffed onion ) 
🔸When the onions have finished cooking, remove and drain from the boiling water. Let cool and separate out the layers individually and place 1 heaping tablespoon of the filling, wrap onion around filling, but not too tightly to allow rice to expand during cooking.
🔸In a large skillet /pan saute onion and chopped tomatoes with 1 Tbs of brown sugar over medium-high heat, swirl in the olive oil. When pan is hot, place the onions seam-side down. Let cook for 2 minutes until the bottoms have browned slightly. Add warm water if needed, Cover the pan and turn the heat to low. Cook for 40 minuets and enjoy😊 
🔸Notes
you can had chopped fresh green herbs into the sauce
The longer you cook the better it taste
