Tomato stuffed with mushroom, sweet corn & cheese

I am very fond of stuffed foods and often keep experimenting on them. They can be served well as  quick handy snacks and even as appetizer before settling into the main dishes. Earlier I shared with you one such recipe of Stuffed Mushrooms. Now It is the turn for stuffed tomatoes. I have so far found some Greek recipes where tomatoes get stuffed with meat minces. Here instead I give it a complete vegetarian treatment and fill the tomatoes with mushrooms, corns and cheese. Hope you will like it.
