Onions Stuffed with Cheese & Tomatoes
Stuffed Onions with Cheese & Tomatoes
One day, I was making stuffed peppers and I had some stuffing left over. Wondering what to do with it, I spotted half an onion left over from an omelette I had made earlier. So I shelled it into 2 cups, filled them with remaining stuffing and baked them along with the peppers. They came out really tasty, something I will definitely make again. You can wrap them in a foil and cook them on a BBQ too.
You can stuff onion with a meat or fish or prawn filling too.Serves 4-6
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 medium tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1 tbsp. coriander leaves
1 tbsp. chopped mint leaves (optional)
1 stalk of celery, finely chopped
150 gm. packet of mozzarella cheese or cheddar cheese, grated or crumbled
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. chilli flakes (optional
1 tsp. roasted cumin seeds (optional)
2-3 tbsp. olive oil
Preheat the oven to 200C 400 F.
Peel onion, cut in half and then split each half into 3 shells of about 2 layer thickness each.
Mix all stuffing ingredients in a bowl, adjust seasoning.
Fill in 1/6th of the filling in each shell. Place all onions on a lined oven tray.
Drizzle olive oil over them.
Bake in hot oven for 25-30 minutes, until cooked.
Stuffed onions can be wrapped in aluminium foil parcels singly and cooked on a BBQ.
