  1. Cut tops off tomatoes and scoop out flesh with a melon baller, leaving ¼- to ½-inch thick sides and bottoms. Discard tomato tops and flesh.
  2. Brush the bottom of an air fryer basket with olive oil.
  3. Combine cooked rice, Parmesan cheese, goat cheese, walnuts, 1 tablespoon basil, and garlic in a medium bowl. Combine bread crumbs, and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small bowl. Fill tomatoes with rice mixture, then sprinkle with bread crumb mixture. Place stuffed tomatoes into the prepared air fryer basket.
  4. Cook in the air fryer at 370°F (188°C) until tomatoes are tender, filling is heated through, and topping is golden brown, about 15 minutes. Garnish with remaining basil.
  • Cook's Note:
  • You can substitute shredded mozzarella cheese for goat cheese, if preferred.
