Scrumptious baked tomatoes make a fun, edible bowl for this savory filling.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup warm cooked spelt or farro
  • 3/4 cup sliced olives
  • 1/3 cup grated asiago cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded basil
  • 1 Tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbs plain breadcrumbs
  • 4 (8 oz.) firm, ripe tomatoes

Directions

  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine spelt, 1/2 cup olives, 2 tablespoons asiago cheese, basil, vinegar and salt. Season with pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine breadcrumbs with remaining olives and asiago cheese. Set aside. Prepare tomatoes for stuffing by cutting 1/4-inch off of the tops of each. Using a small spoon or melonballer, scoop out seeds and center flesh to make each into a hollow cup (leaving at least 1/4-inch of flesh around sides and bottom). Fill each tomato with 1/2 cup (approximately 3 ounces) of spelt mixture.
  • Top with breadcrumb mixture and place on a high sided baking pan. Broil under medium-high heat for 45-90 seconds until golden brown. Serve warm or room temperature.
