Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1 bag Minute® Rice & Quinoa
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • 6 large tomatoes, ripe but firm
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup dried currants or raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup minced parsley
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano leaves
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • Enjoy the flavors of Greece tonight with your family or impress your guests at your next dinner party with these irresistible Greek Stuffed Tomatoes.

    Step 1

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly oil a 2-quart baking dish using 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

    Step 2

  • Prepare rice and quinoa according to package directions, substituting chicken or vegetable stock for water.

    Step 3

  • Cut the tops off of the tomatoes and reserve. Scoop out the flesh into a small bowl using a spoon.

    Step 4

  • Place a mesh strainer over another medium-sized mixing bowl. Using the spoon, press as much of the tomato flesh through the strainer as you can. Discard the seeds and pulp left in the strainer.

    Step 5

  • Add the cooked rice and quinoa to the strained tomato in the bowl. Stir in the feta cheese, currants or raisins, mint, parsley, garlic, oregano and cinnamon and stir to combine.

    Step 6

  • Lightly salt and pepper the insides of the tomatoes. Stuff each one with the rice mixture and place into the prepared baking dish.

    Step 7

  • Place the tops back on each of the tomatoes. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and bake for about 45 minutes, or until the tomatoes are almost collapsed. Serve warm or at room temperature.
