    VegSocialWorker's Note:

    These tomatoes are stuffed with spinach, cheese and toasted sunflower seeds. They are individually wrapped which make them perfect for a bbq where you may have to share the grill. Veggies and meat eaters both liked them. We like this with more garlic and red chili flakes. From 1000 Vegetarian Recipes from Around the World.

      Well, this was really interesting and very good! I did bake them in the oven, which worked out well. Unfortunately, I couldn't get big round tomatoes, so my presentation wasn't quite perfect, but for taste and variety, you can't go wrong. I'm very glad that I tried these!
