So I have loved stuffed tomatoes so much lately, I have made them at least 4 times in the last couple of months! mmmm
Tonight I decided to try something more with them. First I got some Wild Rice cooking. I dumped about 2 cups of Wild Rice in a pot of about 4 cups of water, and a couple Tblsp. of olive oil, brought it all to a boil for about 2 minutes, and then let it simmer on low for about 40 min, or until done.
Then I hollowed out the tomatoes, and mixed the following ingredients with the juicy insides.
1. juicy insides of tomato (1 tomato per person eating)
2. 1 can of Kidney beans
3. 1 can of sliced black olives
4. about 5 or 6 sliced green onions
5. a bunch of fresh basil leaves
6. I also added some vegetable base seasoning mix
Then spoon some of the mixture into each hollowed tomato, and set the tomatoes in the mixture so the mixture is supporting tomatoes. Put it in a pre-heated oven of 350 degrees F. and for about 30-40 min, until the tomatoes are tender and the water in the mixture is gone.
