Couscous Stuffed Grilled Tomatoes

Couscous-Stuffed Grilled Tomatoes

Wow the vegetarians and omnivores alike with this deliciously stuffed and grilled tomato recipe. Roasting the tomatoes really releases a ton of flavor making this dish amazing. When possible, I like to use heirloom tomatoes when in season.
