CHEESE: Tomatoes Stuffed with Feta

Post  junie on 08.12.10 20:23

So Brunch today I fancied a 'fresh' taste to chase away the grey skies

study I'd seen a recipe for Feta-Stuffed Tomatoes on an American site (iVillage)a few days before and now seemed like a good day to give it a HO.

I'll share it with you having converted the cups and Fahrenheit into something more readily understandable(to me anyways) Suspect

Feeds 1 with a healthy appetite(that would be me then ), 2 with more modest aspirations or 4 as a starter(the original intention)



2 Large Tomatoes (or 4 medium - depends what you can get your hands on, with patience and a steady hand there's no limit to how small a tomato you can stuff Shocked )

60g or 2 ounces of fine, dry breadcrumbs

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley(I used flat leaf)

120g or 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese(I actually only used half a 200g pack for economy - seemed OK to me)

2 tablespoons chopped spring onions

2 tablespoons olive oil


Cut tomatoes in half horizontally

Scoop out pulp from each tomato half, leaving shells intact

Discard seeds if you wish - I kept mine

Coarsely chop the tomato pulp and mix with other ingredients. Season to taste, feta is naturally quite salty anyways.

Place tomato halves on a shallow HO tolerant dish.

Fill the tomato halves with the mix

Cook for 15mins at 160C in the middle of HO with extender or lower shelf otherwise

This is quite a low temperature but feta is an easy melt soft cheese and the aim is to allow the tomato and filling to heat through. The topping will be gently browned when done. The middle may not be piping hot but that isn't a problem as these are salad ingredients - the heat is really to release the flavors rather than
a serious cooking exercise

The end result is fairly soft - which I quite liked but if you want a firmer result then either increase the breadcrumbs or reduce the tomato pulp ratio

Hope any who try it enjoy it as much as I did Good Luck
