This rustic dish using beef mince is easy to make and perfect to serve with a salad. The skinned fresh tomatoes can be replaced with tinned ones if you are pressed for time.
Cut an X in the skin at the base of the tomato taking care not to cut the flesh. Put the tomatoes in a large bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave for approximately 20 seconds depending on the ripeness of the tomatoes. When the skin starts to peel away replace the hot water with cold water. Peel the skins away from the tomatoes.
There's no way the aubergine can cook properly - or are the 'shells' just meant to hold the mix? Seems wasteful. - 23 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
