Lamb Rice Stuffed Onions with Coriander Tomato Sauce

Let’s stuff some onions with something good, shall we? A mixture of cumin-flavored hot lamb mince and rice would be just perfect. But this calls for a matching sauce. For this use a tomato base and flavor it with coriander.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
