Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes recipe is easy to make.

First, boil the eggs. Put the eggs in a saucepan with plenty of cold water and bring the water to a boil. Cook the eggs for about 8 minutes, from the moment of boiling.

Then let them cool and peel under cold water running.

While cooling, wash the tomatoes and cut the tops off.

Empty them completely with the help of a teaspoon, season with a little salt, turn them upside down on a plate and allow them to drain while preparing the filling.

Once cold, mix the eggs in the mixer together with drained tuna (the more oil that you can drain off the better is), a tbsp of capers and 4 anchovies.

Pour the mixture into a bowl and add the mayonnaise, mix well. Season with salt, pepper and thyme.

Mix everything to obtain a homogeneous mixture, then stuff the tomatoes and garnish with a few mint leaves (or basil). Refrigerate for at least an hour and serve.

Here they are. Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes are ready.
