Nothing screams summer quite like grilling seasonal vegetables, and if you haven’t tried a vegetarian stuffed tomato recipe, you’re missing out! During the summer season, tomatoes are so juicy and deliciously sweet, that’s when they’re at their peak, especially as summer starts to wind down. This vegetarian brown rice-stuffed tomato recipe is packed with flavor and spice and will fill you up and make you feel blah.

This dish has it all – a load of veggies, just the right balance of spice and the enough bulk to keep you satisfied. Feel free to add more (or less) diced veggies and spices. You can play around with the stuffing with alternative grains as well, such as millet, white rice, quinoa or bulgur.

Brown Rice-Stuffed Tomato Recipe

Serves 4



Turn on the grill and let it heat up while you prepare the tomatoes.

Slice off the tops of each tomato and spoon out their centers, hollowing them out and creating a bowl. Save the insides for another recipe, like homemade salsa.

In a bowl, mix together the corn, rice, zucchini, shallot, lime, olive oil, salt, parsley, coriander and cumin until evenly combined. Stuff the brown rice mixture into each tomato until it is filled to the brim. Sprinkle liberally with breadcrumbs and the grated cheese. Place the top of each tomato back in its place.

Put the tomatoes on the grill in a section as far away from the charcoal as possible, so that they receive indirect heat. Let cook for 25-30 minutes. Remove the tops and place them directly on the grill and cook for another 5-10 minutes. Place the tops back on the stuffed tomatoes and remove all four from the grill.

Serve with a drizzle of olive oil.
