    Recipe Tips

    For more whole grains per bite, make this dish with Success® Brown Rice.

    If you’re looking for a hot dish, bake the filled tomatoes. Simply place the filled tomatoes in an oven-safe casserole dish and bake at 350ºF for about 30 minutes, or until the tomatoes are cooked through.

Veggies on Veggies

If you’re a fan of veggie-forward dishes, from Jalapeño Rice Poppers to Zucchini Boats Stuffed with Rice and Sausage, this stuffed tomato recipe is for you.

This recipe isn’t just delicious, it’s also simple to put together. Combine freshly chopped vegetables with Success® Boil-in-Bag white or brown rice and top it with a delicious, creamy dressing. Then, simply fill ripe tomatoes to the brim! The only important thing to remember is that it’s best to plan in advance and allow your rice to cool before mixing it with the rest of the ingredients. If you have leftover rice in your fridge, you could also use that here.

Play With Your Food!

This dish is delicious as is, but feel free to experiment by adding other ingredients or flavors. This dish is naturally vegetarian and packed with veggies, but if you want to add protein, try quinoa. If you want a little meat, try shredded chicken. You could even add hard-boiled egg or tuna to the mix, for a healthy dose of protein.

To add even more great flavor to any of our dishes, cook your Success® Boil-in-Bag rice in broth. To keep this dish vegetarian, use vegetable broth. If it doesn’t matter, you can use your favorite chicken broth.

For added flavor and an Italian flare, add a bit of Parmesan or mozzarella cheese to the rice mix before using it to fill the tomatoes.

For a cute presentation, keep the tomato tops to one side until you’re ready to serve. When the tomatoes are filled and plated, put a “hat” back onto each one.
