There is so much you can do with tomatoes, from light and fresh summery salads to heart warming stuffed beefsteaks. On these pages we feature a small collection of our favourite recipes and inspirational ideas for getting the most out of our tomato inspired product range.

Stuffed beefsteak tomatoes

Ingredients
  • 8 large beefsteak tomatoes (Couer de Boeuf are best)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 150g easy cook rice
  • 30g Oak Roasted Isle of Wight Tomatoes, chopped
  • 300ml hot vegetable stock
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
  • Zest of ½ a lemon, finely grated
  • 50g mature cheddar cheese
  • Rocket leaves to serve, basil for garnish

Method

Preheat the oven to 190C/gas mark 5. Slice approximately 2cm off the top of each tomato and put the tops to one side. Carefully scoop out the insides of the tomato into a bowl using a spoon, being careful not to split the skin.

Over a medium heat fry the onion and garlic in olive oil until soft, then add the tomato pulp and increase the heat to simmer for around 10 minutes. Add the vegetable stock, roasted tomatoes and rice and cook over a low heat for 10 minutes until the rice begins to soften. Stir in the basil, lemon and cheese and season to taste.

Place the tomatoes in a lightly oiled baking ray and fill them with the mixture. Replace the tops and bake in the oven for around 25 minutes until the rice has cooked through and the tomatoes are tender. Garnish with basil leaves and serve with a fresh rocket salad.
