Tomatoes Stuffed with Mediterranean Kamut Salad

Tomatoes Stuffed with Mediterranean Kamut Salad


1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  juice of 1/2 lemon
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon oregano
  salt and freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons (approximately) olive oil
2 cups cooked kamut*
2 shallots, finely minced
1/3 cup crumbled Feta
1/4 cup chopped Kalmata olives
1 tablespoon chopped capers
1/3 cup toasted pine nuts, roughly chopped
1/4 cup chopped parsley
6 medium ripe tomatoes, stem on if possible

Cooking Instructions

In a large bowl combine the vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, oregano and season well with salt and pepper. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil, whisking constantly to emulsify vinaigrette.

In a large bowl, place the kamut and the next six ingredients; drizzle with some of the vinaigrette, stir gently to combine and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Using a serrated knife, trim a small slice off the bottom of the tomato, allowing them to sit squarely on the plate. Slice the tops off the tomatoes and reserve. Using a tablespoon, scoop out the center of the tomato, removing the seeds and pulp to make space for the filling. Season the inside with salt and pepper and fill with kamut salad, mounding it slightly and placing the reserved top at an angle on the filling. Serve cold or room temperature.

*To cook kamut - soak overnight to reduce cooking time. Drain. Place 3 cups water for every cup of kamut in a large pot and bring to a simmer. Season with salt. Add kamut, cover and simmer 30-45 minutes, until tender. Drain; lightly coat with olive oil and season with salt. Use as desired.
