Easy Couscous Stuffed Tomatoes Recipe

This recipe for Easy Couscous Stuffed Tomatoes is such a great way to close out summer! To be honest, I was a little worried my kids wouldn’t like this one (they’ve turned down feta cheese many times before), but I just held my breath and didn’t say a word. And before I knew it, their plates were empty – score! Serve it along with The Best Whole Chicken in the Crock Pot and a simple spinach salad for a super quick and easy weeknight meal. Enjoy :)

Ingredients
  

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium pot, cook the couscous according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, slice the tops off the tomatoes and scoop out the pulp. You can save the pulp for another recipe (like tomato bisque!) or discard. Place prepared tomatoes in a rectangular baking dish and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the feta, garlic, oregano, lemon zest (if you don't have a zester or a microplane, try the smallest holes on your cheese grater), salt, and pepper. Add the couscous when ready and stir until well combined.
  • Divide the couscous mixture among the 4 tomatoes (you may need to pack it in with the back of a spoon to fit it all).
  • In a small bowl, toss the bread crumbs with the olive oil and sprinkle the crumbs on top of the stuffed tomatoes. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown on top.

    I guess I’ve fount what we’ll have for dinner tonight, these tomatoes look delicious and I’m telling you, we have a lot of tomatoes this year. We already wonder what to do with all of them. Guess a quick oven-baked meal wouldn’t hurt.

    Greetings from UK!

  2. Is there something else to use in place of the feta cheese? I can’t do dairy and many times just eliminate it from the recipe.

      Hi Claire. I think it would work well with peppers. You would probably need to lengthen the cook time somewhat until the peppers are tender.
