Directions
Slice-off the top of the tomatoes (& peppers) and carve-out the inside.

Save the "carvings", mash it and mix it with the rice, onion, parsley, salt & pepper and half the oil.

Stuff the tomatoes (& peppers) and lid them with their previously sliced-off tops and place them in a pan.

Top with the tomato-juice, bread-crumbs and the rest of the olive-oil and bake in a medium oven for about 1 hour.

Note: For meat lovers, saute minced meat with the onions and add to the rest of the ingredients.
