  • 2 tsp olives (black or green), chopped
  • 2 tsp capers
  • 2 tsp raisins, chopped

    5)      Add turkey, reserved tomato pulp, cover and let simmer for 12 minutes or until the turkey is cooked and eggplant and onion are very tender (this is your caponata mixture).

    8)      Stuff the hollowed-out tomatoes with the caponata.

    9)      Place the tomatoes on a sheet pan and bake in preheated oven for 15-17 minutes or until tomato skin becomes slightly crispy.

    10)   To serve, place some hummus on a plate and then use a spoon to spread it out. Place the tomato on top and finish with a drizzle of olive oil.
