It’s what we’re talking about this week on Grow. Eat. $ave! Stuffed Tomatoes to be exact…
Got an over abundance of tomatoes?!? Looking for a cool, light and refreshing side…or even a main dish dinner?!? Well, stuffed tomatoes are THE way to go!
Stuffed Tomatoes with Spicy Avocado Salad
4 large tomatoes
1 avocado, diced
About 1/2 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut a cone around the stem bud, cutting out the center portion of the tomato. Scoop out the seeds. (So it won’t be so “runny” when you fork into it.)
In a mixing bowl, toss together the avocado, onion, jalapeno, crushed garlic, ground cumin and lemon juice. Season with a little salt and pepper.
Stuffed the Spicy Avocado Salad into the Tomatoes.
Grilled Stuffed Orange Tomatoes with Black Olives and Provencal Goat Cheese
4 orange tomatoes
1 15 oz. can sliced black olives
1/2 cup goat cheese, provencal flavor
Cut a cone around the stem bud, cutting out the center portion of the tomato. Scoop out the seeds.
In a mixing bowl, toss the black olive slices and the goat cheese and stuff into the awaiting tomatoes.
Place the stuffed tomatoes on a hot grill and grill for about 5-8 minutes, or until goat cheese gets oozy…and the tomato skin begins to wrinkle.
Are you drooling yet?!?
