Peas Soup with Basil and Stuffed Tomatoes with Brown Rice and Feta

A few weeks back when the kids were at the grandparents’ I made a more-than-one-dish dinner for the missus. I have already posted the recipe for the Kale/Cranberry/Almond Salad here. The other two things that I made were a Cold Peas Soup with Basil and Stuffed Tomatoes with Brown Rice and Feta.

Both the recipes came from Saveur magazine and I took the ingredients from the recipe but may have changed the proportions a bit. For example, in the Stuffed Tomatoes, I used considerably less oil than the recipe called for. The food was good. Especially the Stuffed Tomatoes. I was pleasantly surprised by how flavorful they were considering the simplicity of the recipe. The soup turned out well too. But as the wife said, it was “good” not “great”.

The one really interesting thing for me was that I came to learn that the combination of parsley, mint, olive oil and garlic really gives a very strong Mediterranean flavor. The stuffing for the tomatoes was reminiscent of Dolmas.

Easy to make and enjoy, the recipes are here. Happy summer y’all!
