John's Mother's Stuffed Tomatoes with Tabouli
As far as cooking is concerned, some things which are strictly fruits, such as tomatoes or bean pods, may be called 'vegetables' because they are used in savoury rather than sweet cooking. The term 'vegetable' is more generally used of other edible parts of plants, such as cabbage leaves, celery stalks, and potato tubers, which are not strictly the fruit of the plant from which they come.
How to Make John's Mother's Stuffed Tomatoes with Tabouli
- In a bowl, combine the tabouli salad, cucumber and chicken and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
- Cut off the top of each tomato with a small paring knife. With a grapefruit spoon, carefully scoop out the tomato pulp, removing the seeds from each tomato.
- Divide the tabouli mixture into four portions and fill all the tomatoes. Drizzle each tomato with olive oil and top with a dollop of hummus.
