What You'll Need
  • 4 large heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tbs. olive oil
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1.5 cups cooked rice
  • 3 tbs. harissa (optional)
  • ¼ cup mozzarella (shredded)
Instructions
  1. In a large pan, cook the onion, green pepper and garlic with olive oil until tender.
  2. Set aside in a bowl and add the turkey to the same pan. Add salt and pepper and brown (stirring occasionally to break up larger chunks)
  3. Cut out the stem of each tomato then carefully use a knife to remove a good portion of the filling and set aside (just enough so that you can stuff it but not so much that it collapses).
  4. Add one tbs of rice and one tbs of ground turkey, alternating until the tomatoes are filled.
  5. Keep the parts of the tomato you cut out and chop. Add to remaining rice along with the harissa.
  6. Add to the bottom of a baking pan then add the stuffed tomatoes.
  7. Top with mozzarella, brush the sides of the tomatoes with olive oil and cook at 350 for about 25-30 minutes.
