Baked Stuffed Tomatoes

         Today, I got back late from work and was too tired to make an elaborate dinner. I was thinking to make something that is really quick and healthy but still tasty. 
           So here is a quick 10 minute recipe for Baked Stuffed Tomatoes. You may experiment with different kinds of stuffing, and you may also use other vegetables like Bell Peppers or Mushrooms as the base instead of the Tomatoes.

  • 4  medium firm Tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup Cheese (I used a combination of Mexican and Italian cheese blend)
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Onions
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Bell Peppers
  • 1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
  • 8-10 fresh Mint Leaves
  • 1 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  •  Salt to taste
  • Preheat the Oven to 400o F.
  • Cut the tomatoes into half
  • Then scoop out the inside of each tomato carefully with a knife and keep it aside
  • Take the onions, peppers,mint leaves, cheese and the tomato pulp in a bowl
  • Now, add the basil, pepper flakes, salt and pepper and mix it well
  • Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet with the cut side up
  • Put some stuffing mixture, about 2 spoons in each of the tomato half
  • Bake for about 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and lightly browned
  • Serve warm and enjoy
