Stuffed Tomatoes with Rice & Mushrooms

Stuffed Tomatoes with Rice and Mushrooms makes a pleasant lunch dish or an attractive accompaniment to main dishes.

(These are cheery tomatoes from our garden.)

Stuffed Tomatoes 3


  • 6 medium ripe tomatoes
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 large yellow onions, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked rice, medium-grain
  • 1/2 lb. white button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1-2 Tbsp. white wine
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise 
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 3 Tbsp. shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat an oven to 350F. 

Slice the top from each tomato and reserve. Scoop out pulp with a spoon and set aside. (You can use it later for tomato sauce or soup).

Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic, onion and mushrooms and sauté until begin to brown, about 5-7 minutes. Add cooked rice, white wine, season with spices, and add salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes longer. Mix in the mayonnaise.

Fill tomatoes with the rice mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Replace tops of tomatoes and arrange stuffed tomatoes in a baking dish (roasting pan). Bake, uncovered, until tomatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Serve hot or cold.

Stuffed tomatoes, or bell peppers have always been on my list of favorites. Stuffing tomatoes with rice and mushrooms is delicious and makes for a very pretty presentation!
