    Loved these stuffed tomatoes! Don't care for chives so left them out, and subbed raisins for the currants as that's what I had on hand. The couscous in these was so tasty and flavorful, perfect with the roasted tomato. Served as a side dish but next time will make these a main course with salad and some crusty bread. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
