Refreshing and perfect for sharing at a summer picnic these stuffed tomatoes bring a new twist to your quinoa salad.



  1. In a saucepan, combine quinoa, garlic, thyme and broth. Bring to a simmer; cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until broth is absorbed and quinoa is tender. Stir in peas; cover and let stand for 5 minutes.

  3. Fill each tomato with quinoa and pea mixture. Nestle in small oiled casserole dish. Sprinkle each with goat cheese and parsley.
  4. Enjoy as is or alternatively, cover lightly and bake in 350 F (180 C) oven for about 15 minutes or until tomatoes start to split.
