Stuffed Pickled Tomatoes Recipe

Excited to share this delicious appetizer from Armenian cuisine: stuffed pickled tomatoes. There are so many different ways of pickling veggies , and Armenian cuisine has a great variety of that goodness . Last year about this time, I filmed a tutorial for mixed veggies, if you haven’t watched it take a moment and watch it , especially if you’re a fan of pickled, marinated foods, like I am:)

This one here, is a real delicatessen, considering the unique taste and superfine look.

Very simple to make, slightly time consuming, but well worth every minute spent. I’m sure these pickled tomatoes are going to be on your “favorite pickled veggies” list .






The best part with these specific pickled tomatoes, is that they take only 2-3 days to get ready, unlike other kinds, that may take 7-9 days to fully marinate. The vinegar does its job in this recipe and speeds up the process.
