uncooked white rice
chopped fresh mint
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
Really good but the rice and lentils needed to be cooked a lot longer. You could try this in peppers too! Will make again I'll just do it a little different.
This was ok but nothing outstanding. I used green lentils - the store didn't have red - and I added a little bit of garlic to the stuffing as it was a rather bland. I don't think the mint was a good addition - it didn't complement the other flavors terribly well.
I topped the tomatoes with feta. They had an excellent taste and were very easy to prepare.
Delicious. I too added feta and pine nuts. About the only other thing I would add would be some cumin in the rice/lentil mixture. Yum.
Very good! I recommend cooking the lentils/rice for 15 minutes on the stovetop so they aren't crunchy, but not more or they will be mushy. Firm tomatoes made scooping out the middles easy, and the cilanto substitution was quite good. Additionally, I added Goat Cheese and Pine Nuts, tented with foil except for last 3 minutes to brown nuts and slightly melt cheese, and left the "caps" off. Yummy, nutty flavor with the mildness of the cheese made this an elegant side dish for the fish I served it with! Would be a good main dish, but Hubby generally likes more than veggies for supper. :)
It was a great hit with my family.My daughter is vegetarian and she loved it.Also my husband loved it who is not a vegetarian.I advise it to anyone who loves tomatoes.Also I did not use the mint but,I did add feta cheese to the rice and I laid a slice of provlone over the top of the tomato under its hat.And I added sliced fresh mushrooms to the tomato sauce you use from the insides of the tomatoes.I also found if you use firm tomatoes it is easier.Enjoy as my family did.!
This was very tasty. The lentils gave a nutty flavor.
This was a good way to use up extra tomatoes from our garden, but this recipe wasn't a big hit at our house.
