Stuffed Tomatoes

Got some great tomatos from the farmers market today, really huge.

I'm going stuff them for appertizers tonight:

Stuffed Beef Tomatoes

4 Huge (Beef) Tomatoes

4 cloves garlic (finely diced)

1 small red onion (finely diced)

Freshly chopped mint

Freshly chopped oregano

Freshly chopped Basil

Freshly chopped chives

½ cucumber (finely diced)

1 ball mozzarella (finely diced)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp white wine

1 tbsp lemon juice


1, Cut off a lid of each of the beef tomatoes, 1 cm from the top. Hollow out the flesh from inside the tomato. Place the flesh in a bowl, setting aside the shells.

2, Roughly chop the flesh and combine with the onion, garlic, herbs, cucumber and mozzarella.

3, Add the oil, vinegar, white wine and lemon juice, and carefully mix together. Spoon the mixture back inside the tomatoes. Leave for several hours, and then serve with thick slices of bread.
