How to make Quinoa Stuffed Tomatoes

  1. First, dedicate yourself to preparing the quinoa . Put it in a fine mesh sieve and rinse it under running water to remove the bitter taste. Transfer it to a pan and cover it with double its volume of water. Salt lightly and cook for absorption without ever stirring.
  2. Meanwhile, put the spinach in the pan after washing them. Cover and let them dry without adding more water: the residual water from the washing will be enough. Once tender, squeeze them and chop them with a knife. In the same pan, heat a spoonful of oil with a clove of garlic and sauté the spinach, seasoning with salt.
  3. Wash the tomatoes , cut the cap and remove the internal part with a spoon or corer. Mix the quinoa with the spinach and the grated cheese and stuff the tomatoes.
  4. Complete with a slice of stringy Galbanino cheese and bake at 180°C for 30 minutes . Serve the stuffed tomatoes in the oven after letting them cool.
