Stuffed Tomatoes with Rice


4 large tomatoes

2 tablespoons of olive oil

½ cup of diced onion

2 cups cooked rice

1/3 teaspoon of allspice

Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the tops of the tomatoes and scoop out the insides using a small knife. In a frying pan, with olive oil, sauté the onions until soft.

Place stuffed tomatoes into a baking dish and cook for 25 minutes.

1 tablespoon of water
