Corn-Stuffed Tomatoes

"From the 8/2009 edition of country living. Great no-cook summer recipe if using leftover rice. I reduced the olive oil to 1 tablespoon from 4. Easy to make, fresh tasting, quick and inexpensive too. You can also double the stuffing and eat the rest as a salad (without the tomato)."

    Delicious tomatoes! I omitted the salt (personal preference) and am looking forward to enjoying this during the hot summer months, as suggested! I had plenty of leftover filling, which was good by itself too. Thanks for sharing!

    Wonderful! We made this as written except that my cilantro had gone bad (boo) so I substituted some ground coriander seed. It was outstanding. Just the filler alone would have been a great side dish. It was very filling. We had this with #47391 it made a perfect meal! (Oh, btw, I halved the filler recipe, but stuffed 2 very large tomatoes.)

    We loved this!! My three year old daughter and I had so much fun putting this together with brown rice and both yellow and orange pepper. The colors and flavors were fantastic and it was so quick and easy. We BBQ'd steak to go with it and had a wonderful summer meal. The only thing I will do differently next time is use the entire avocado. Thank you so much for posting. I haven't found a recipe I have loved as much as this in a long time.

<p>Clockwise from upper left, my dear friends Cranberry, Quincy, Kumquat and Kiwi. All of our cats were born in the wild and adopted by us. Zaar Chefs I have met so far: Elmotoo, justcallmeToni, ~Rita~, Midwest Maven, Bird&amp;Buddha (both of them) and most recently, Ms*Bindy from upstate New York:) Wonderful, sweet, friendly people and great chefs! Most relevant thing to mention here is that I am a vegetarian, and recently became a&nbsp;vegan&nbsp;(almost 100%). To put vegetables and other things not meat or fish on the table I work as an actuary (in my case anyway, a combination of statistician, number-cruncher and/or programmer). For fun I like to travel. Just came back from&nbsp;Namibia, a peaceful democracy in Africa with lots of animals! Got some terrific pictures of lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, rhinocerous, hyenas, all kinds of antelopes, giraffes and zebras. Namibia is the second most sparsely populated country per square mile, just behind Mongolia. Update:&nbsp; We went to Italy this Spring.&nbsp; We had lots of pizza and pasta.&nbsp; The pizza is so much better in Italy, particularly the crust.&nbsp; The Amalfi coast was absolutely beautiful.&nbsp; Spectacular natural scenery (Canada and Alaska are really beautiful, Patagonia in Chile is sublime, Iceland is unique) has been my latest passion as far as travel destinations but I have seen quite a few big cities too (Paris, Berlin, London and Madrid to name a few). On my bulletin board at work I keep a list of every country I've visited (other than the U.S. of course). So far I've made it to five continents: Europe, Africa, South America, Asia and North America of course. I've got only two other continents to conquer:) I don't usually have difficulty finding vegetarian dishes here in the U.S. or overseas, but finding vegan dishes is much harder. I have no kids, just cats, Kumquat, Cranberry, and more recently Quincy and Kiwi. They are purebreds, of the breed alley caticus (okay, American shorthair I guess). Our cats are not vegetarians, though my boyfriend (significant other, long-term partner, whatever) is. I am a friend of all animals both tamed and wild. In addition I am a freethinker and my boyfriend studies philosophy. Either way, we get along pretty well.&nbsp; Also, please allow me to say that my BF and I recently bought a condominium in NYC.:)&nbsp; Pet peeve? Okay, I don't like public scenes, especially parents yelling at their children, lovers' spats, etc. If it must be done please do it in private:D Participation &amp; Awards:</p>
