Baked Stuffed Tomatoes

10.17.10 by Jackie

Rice-stuffed tomatoes are quite easy to make. I made this version with a sun-dried tomato risotto, which I then stuffed inside Brandywine tomatoes. The tomatoes were paired with a vegetable sauce made from the insides of the tomatoes, lemon juice, and a few additional vegetable such as carrots, corn, peas and onions. The sauce was placed at the bottom of the baking pan to help keep the tomatoes from burning.

I topped the tomatoes with a Parmesan shortbread crust and baked them for a few minutes before serving. The result is a fairly light meal with a nice contrast of texture from the crusty top and the creaminess of the rice filling.

Vietnamese-Style Stuffed Tomatoes (Tomates Farcies) Recipe

A lot of Vietnamese dishes are inspired by French cuisine, because Vietnam was a longtime colony of the French empire. Tomates farcies (cà chua nhồi thịt in Vietnamese) is no exception. In Vietnam, it is referred to as tomates farcies, which literally translates to "stuffed tomatoes tomatoes"!

Traditional French stuffed tomatoes are filled with garlic bread crumbs, chair à saucisse and chopped jambon de Bayonne (sausage meat and prosciutto). The Vietnamese version uses the same filling as meat eggrolls.

I used veal for its low fat content as well as its texture and color for this dish. And most important, it cooks pretty fast. You can certainly use any other meat, such as ground beef.
