Stuffed tomatoes


  • Wash the tomatoes and with a sharp knife, cut a lid from the bottom side, not from the stem. It’s better to cut this side as it can hold more stuffing.
  • With a spoon, carefully scoop out the flesh of the tomatoes. Try not to pierce the skin as the stuffing will fall out during baking.
  • Put the flesh of the tomatoes into a bowl and finely chop the pieces that may be bigger. 
  • Put the tomatoes in the baking pan, stem side down.
  • Season the tomatoes with salt and pepper and drizzle them with half of the olive oil. 
  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan. 
  • Finely chop the onion.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in a pot over medium heat. 
  • Sauté the onion for 2-3 minutes until it softens. 
  • Add and sauté the rice for 1 more minute.
  • Add the tomato flesh so to deglaze the pot.
  • Stir with a serving spoon and add the water, the garlic, salt, and pepper. 
  • Simmer for 5 minutes until the rice softens and absorbs the water.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and add the mint.
  • Mix the stuffing with a spoon and divide it among the tomatoes.
  • If you have any leftover stuffing, do not discard it, pour it also into the pan.
  • Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil. 
  • Bake in the oven for 1 hour until the tomatoes are tender. 
  • Remove the aluminum foil and bake for 15 more minutes until the stuffed tomatoes are nicely golden.
  • Remove the baking pan from the oven and serve with feta cheese, bread slices, and sprinkle with mint leaves.
