Tomatoes stuffed with cheese

Armenia never disappoints when it comes to its delicious cuisine. Whether you are a foodie or just someone who likes good food, the flavours and dishes of Armenia are sure to leave you satisfied. One dish you definitely have to try is stuffed tomatoes. I filled these juicy tomatoes with a spicy mixture and fresh curd that creates flavours with every bite.

You will need:

2 tomatoes
fresh cottage cheese
cheddar cheese


Remove the tomato stems and wash them thoroughly.
Then use a sharp knife to cut the top of the tomatoes (try to make a zigzag shape). Scoop out the inside of the tomatoes with a small spoon.
Place the fresh cottage cheese in a small bowl.
Stuff the cheese mixture into the tomatoes. Garnish with cheddar cheese. Serve with cucumber and basil.
