    We tried this and found it a little dull. I even added salt, pepper, and fresh garlic and used fresh tomatoes. It was good, but not very exciting. I’d make it again, though, if I had these veggies all around at the same time!

    • And this was my favorite out of this meal… seemed the most flavorful (most Albanian recipes are very plain for my taste – not bold flavors).

      I think this dish would be at its best when using homegrown veggies… I wish I had more of a green thumb :)

    I am Albanian An we do Not cook this dish this way. The way that my mamma tought me has a lot more veggies and plenty of taste… The veggies used in this recepe will not have taste no matter what you put in it. Our turli is a mix of eggplant, okra, zucchini, onions, green onions, tomatoes and potatoes. The best way is to bake it. I’d be happy to share that recepe:)
