Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly oil a 2-quart baking dish using 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
Prepare rice and quinoa according to package directions, substituting chicken or vegetable broth for water.
Meanwhile, cut tops off of the tomatoes and reserve. Scoop out the flesh into a small bowl using a spoon.
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.
Add the cooked rice and quinoa to the strained tomato in the bowl. Stir in the feta cheese, mint, parsley, garlic and oregano and stir to combine.
Season insides of tomatoes with salt and pepper. Stuff with the rice mixture and place into the prepared baking dish.
Place the tops back on each of the tomatoes. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and bake for about 30 minutes, or until the tomatoes are heated through and starting to blister on the outside. Serve warm or at room temperature.
For an Italian twist, replace feta cheese with Parmesan or mozzarella. Buon appetito!

Using broth in your cooking allows you to add more layers of flavor to your meals. Two of the most popular broth flavors are chicken and vegetable. Deciding which one is right for you depends on your tastes.
Chicken broth is made from chicken and vegetables while vegetable broth is made from a variety of vegetables. Whichever one you use depends on your tastes and on the dish you’re making. If you want to bring out more of the chicken flavor in a dish — such as this Creamed Corn and Jalapeño Chicken Rice — then you’d use chicken broth. On the other hand, if you want to a lighter flavor that highlights other ingredients, you might opt for vegetable broth, as in this Salmon and Rice Chowder.
