Preparing Stuffed Tomatoes recipe

Preparation of Stuffed Tomatoes:

Wash the tomatoes thoroughly. Cut the top off the tomatoes. Remove the inside flesh of the tomato out with a grapefruit spoon or grapefruit knife. Place the flesh in a colander to drain. Once you have washed your herbs, remove the leaves from the stems and cut them finely with either a knife or herb scissors. Add the herbs to the cottage cheese. Push the garlic through a garlic press and add it to the cheese. Add the lemon juice, buttermilk, and salt and mix with a handheld mixer until smooth. Now add the drained tomatoes and mix again. Fill the tomatoes with the herb cheese mixture and place them on a serving plate. 

NOTE: If you have any of stuffing left, serve it as a dip with potato chips as an appetizer.
