How to prepare quinoa stuffed tomatoes

  1. First, dedicate yourself to preparing the quinoa . Place it in a fine mesh strainer 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. Lightly salt and cook until absorbed without ever stirring.
  2. In the meantime, put the spinach in the pan after washing it. Cover and let them dry without adding more water: the residual water from washing will be enough. Once tender, squeeze them and chop them with a knife. Always heat a spoonful of oil with a clove of garlic in the same pan and sauté the spinach, adding salt to taste.
  3. Wash the tomatoes , cut the cap and remove the internal part with a spoon or a corer. Mix the quinoa with the spinach and 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 baked stuffed tomatoes after letting them cool.
