We had one of our dearest friends round for tea on Friday night and I made dinner. I decided to make something I haven’t made before. I’ve stuffed peppers before and chicken but haven’t given tomatoes a go just yet. I didn’t know how they would turn out, as with all experiments, but I was pleased with the results.
We all know that broccoli and cheese work beautifully together and they did in the tomatoes. When you bite into the tomato it gives you a burst of acidity and moisture and then the flavours of the filling hit you and counteract the acidity. Really delicious.
Only thing I can complain about is preparing the tomatoes. It was a little time consuming and annoying to try and get the insides out of the tomatoes. There was so much juice and it was going everywhere and it was difficult not to rip the skin itself. Saying that though, I think the end result was worth it.
I had to give this recipe a couple of attempts to get right. The first time, I ended up with some much ‘filling’ that I stuffed some an extra pepper and made
