Chef's Note
To cook the rice, follow the instructions on the package since the cooking time varies according to quality.

To vary the recipe, you can add some chopped cilantro and a chopped sardine or anchovy to the stuffing.

Ingredients for 4 servings
- 500 g (18 oz.) medium Tomatoes
- 1 large ripe Tomato (180-200 g / 6-7 oz.)
- 8 black olives
- 20 g (2/3 oz.) red rice
- 20 g (2/3 oz.) wild rice
- 2 thin green onions
- 15 g (1 tbsp.) pine nuts
- 40 g (3 tbsp.) mayonnaise
- 2-3 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tsp. sherry vinegar
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. Cook the two rices separately - allow about 1 hour for the red rice and 1 hour 15 minutes for the wild rice. After cooking, refresh and drain.
  2. Blanch the tomatoes. Completely skin the large tomato, cut it into quarters, seed, and cut the flesh into small cubes.
  3. For the small tomatoes, remove the skin by beginning at the bottom of the tomato and peeling up towards the stem end. Cut off a lid and hollow out the centres. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  4. Pit the olives and dice finely. Finely chop the onions.
  5. Toast the pine nuts under the broiler or in a skillet with 1 tbsp. olive oil.
  6. Set aside 1 tbsp. diced tomato, 1 tbsp. chopped onion and half of the olives. Season with 2 tbsp. olive oil, the vinegar, salt and pepper.
  7. Combine the remaining vegetables and pine nuts with the two rices. Bind with the mayonnaise, season with salt and pepper.
  8. Stuff the small tomatoes and replace the lids.
  9. Place 2 tomatoes on each plate and arrange the diced vegetables combined with the vinaigrette around them.
