Stuffed Tomatoes and Peppers. This dish is light and moist, not forgetting just how tasty it is.
You can use it as main dish with salad or you can use it as side dish, it’s really up to you. My inspiration came from Greece – I love their food, and we all know how healthily they eat – they’re so proud of their cooking.
I love stuffing tomatoes with all kind of fillings but this one is special, because it reminds me of one of my favourite holidays in Rhodes. They have little houses gathered together sloping down to the sea. We sat in this very small taverna when we tried this dish, it was amazingly delicious. I could see and taste every little herb and flavour. Add to this all the gold and jewellery shops all over the place, and a girl is in heaven!
You can use parsley instead of mint but this combination of dill with mint works really well in my opinion. You can serve it with natural yoghurt its lovely combination. The choice of which coloured peppers is up to you of course – just personal preference. I like to use 3 or 4 different colours to keep it interesting.
I also serve these Stuffed Tomatoes and Peppers with a dish called souzoukakia (click here) these two dishes truly go really well together.
I do hope all my Greek friends will agree with me. It would be lovely if you make this beautiful simple dish – I don’t often make promises, but I promise you won’t regret it!
