Stuffed Tomato pots

If you are a rice-eater and are bored of serving the same things over and over again, here is a different way of presenting it. The good thing about this recipe is you could use a variety of combination of vegetables with the rice ! There are not much spices involved, the natural flavor of olive oil is sufficient enough to give a rich taste. I generally use olive oil in most of my cooking for its health benefits . Here in this recipe, I have used Minced Meat to give a stomach-full feeling.

Ingredients for 4 persons
Tomatoes (Big and Ripe, and preferably thick skinned) - 8
Onion -1 (chopped)
Minced meat - 150 gms / small cut vegetables of your choice
Raw Rice - 100 gms
Olive oil - 2 tbsp (you could as well use any other sunflower oil)
1.  Wash the Tomatoes. Take out the pulp using a spoon and collect it in a bowl.
2. Now, prepare the Stuffing by heating the olive oil in a pan and saut the onion until transparent.
3. Add minced meat, raw rice, half of the tomato pulp, salt and pepper to it and fry for 2-3mins. Add 1 cup of water(or more depending on your rice) and cook it until the rice is done and the stuffing is water-free.
4. Stuff the prepared rice into the Tomato pots and place them in a greased tray.
5. Preheat the oven to 180°C and bake the pots for about 30-35 minutes.
Tips : Serve it with raita or Yogurt and a Salad.
           Preserve and save the rest of the Tomato pulp for other use.
