So, Miss 5, she doesn’t eat tomatoes. The face crinkles, the nose turns up, the fists clench…then the words spill forth…they are gross, horrible, revolting, as bad as goblin poo, terribly, terribly unpleasant. She pulls out all the stops to make sure I know what she means about tomatoes, doesn’t she?
Yet, she eats pasta sauce, lasagne, pizza, so many items with tomato in them without being aware and she ate two of these and didn’t realise that they were tomatoes…so I’m calling that a win. Master 3 on the other hand was in the full throes of a tummy bug, so I didn’t even attempt to try these out on him.
Now, I have to admit, the reason this filling came about was I didn’t have any mint or parsley to make a traditional tabouli filling. If you prefer, you could make the tabouli recipe that I’ve linked too to fill the tomatoes.
But these were delicious with their non traditional filling and we loved them, so give them a go! This made more “tabouli” than was needed for the tomatoes I had but it was also yummy as a salad, so set aside the remainder for lunch salads or for dinner!
