How to make it

  • Slice off the top of the tomatoes and the peppers.
  • Use a spoon to remove the inside part of the tomatoes and the peppers.
  • Try to leave the empty tomatoes as thin as possible but be careful not to poke through their skin.
  • Save the inner part of the tomatoes you have removed. It will be used for the stuffing.
  • Mash the inner tomato parts with a blender and mix half of the tomato mash with the rice, the onions (chopped), the spearmint, the sugar and the parsley.
  • Pour olive oil and boil the rice mixture.
  • Add salt and pepper as desired.
  • Do not overcook the stuffing.
  • The rice should not be soft. It will soften later during baking time. Stuff the tomatoes and the peppers and cover them with their tops. Place them in a pan, surround them with the potatoes (sliced) and pour the rest of the tomato mash.
  • Add olive oil and bake for about 1 1/2 hour in at 375 .
  • Add water to the bottom of the pan, if required, during baking. This keeps the tomatoes and peppers moist.

    This is a classic recipe I have had from my Greek friends that I have adapted for the way I eat today.

    Sounds very good, but I have a your ingredient list, 2 cups rice, is the rice cooked or raw? If raw, is there really enough liquid to cook this rice thoroughly by step 10?
