Tomatoes Stuffed with Herbed Couscous
canned tomato paste
uncooked whole wheat couscous
fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp, chopped
⅛ pinch, freshly ground
- In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups water, the oil and tomato paste to a boil. Stir in the couscous, lemon juice, parsley, basil, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand until the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Uncover; gently fluff with a fork and let cool completely.
- Cut off the top of tomatoes, reserve the slices to use as lids. Scoop out the seeds and membranes from the tomatoes. Divide the couscous among the tomatoes; top with the lids.
