VEGETABLES AND SIDES

Stuffed Roasted Tomatoes

2018年8月8日

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with tomatoes.

I really can’t get enough of them this summer.  This week, as I recover from the stupid cold that’s had me sick for ELEVEN days so far… I want tomatoes and lots of them.

I want to taste their juicy, tangy, sweet flavor in as many ways as possible.  And, in my heart of hearts, I believe that vitamin A & C packed veggie is going to heal me!

Stuffed Roasted Tomatoes

So, the tomato flavor for the week is this stuffed roasted tomato.  I’ve never done this before, but it is so so delicious.  I lightened up the dish a little more by adding Laughing Cow cheese instead of the goat cheese the original recipe called for.  Summery, amazing, and the perfect side for a nice steak.  Speaking of steak, stop by next week for a tasty steak recipe I enjoyed last week…
