4 DelFrescoPure® Beefsteak Tomatoes, cored
Tip: scoop seeds out with a melon baller
1½ tbsp olive oil
1 cup grain or grain/legume combination
1 cup lightly wilted kale, spinach, or
½ cup shredded aged Cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 15 min
1 Preheat oven to 400° F or, if grilling, set barbecue to medium-high.
2 Once tomatoes are prepared as directed in ingredient list, rub inside and out with olive oil, then season well with salt and pepper on the inside.
3 Combine grain of choice with greens and half the cheese, about ¼ cup.
4 Stuff ½ cup of the mixture into the hollow of each tomato.
5 Place 1 tbsp of remaining ¼ cup of cheese on top of each tomato, pressing down to make sure it is inside the hollow.
6 Bake or barbecue for 15 minutes until the tomato is blistered slightly, the filling is hot, and the cheese has melted. Serve immediately.
Tip: The filling mixture is to your preference. This is a great way to use leftover grains such as cooked quinoa, rice, bulgur, etc. The more seasoning in the grain the better the finished dish will be.
