Low Cholesterol, Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


6 large tomatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ cups mushrooms
fresh, white; wiped clean and sliced
1 cup onions
10 ounces spinach, frozen
(1 pkg.) chopped, thawed and drained
2 teaspoons garlic
1 teaspoon basil
dried, crushed
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground
1/2 cup long grain rice
(raw) cooked in chicken broth for 20 min.
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons bread crumbs
for topping
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
for topping
2 tablespoons butter
melted, for topping


Preheat oven to 400℉ (200℃). Cut a slice from the top of each tomato; remove pulp, leaving a ¼ inch thick shell; drain and wipe insides of tomatoes dry; set aside. Chop tomato pulp and reserve.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot. Add mushrooms and onion; cook and stir until tender, about 10 minutes. Add spinach, reserved chopped tomato pulp, garlic, basil, salt and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until flavors blend, about 10 minutes. Stir in cooked rice. Remove from heat; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in ¼ cup Parmesan cheese.

Place tomato shells in a 13 x 9 baking dish sprayed lightly with vegetable or olive oil spray. Spoon hot mixture into shells, dividing evenly.

Mix together the 2 Tbs. bread crumbs and 2 Tbs. Parmesan in a small bowl or ramekin. Sprinkle mixture on top of each stuffed tomato. Drizzle with the melted butter.

Bake until tomatoes are hot and the filling and topping are golden, about 15 minutes.

This time I used quinoa cooked in low sodium chicken broth instead of rice.

These savory stuffed tomatoes look delicious, love using quinoa instead of rice, which made the result even healthier but still taste delicious. Will have to give this recipe a try, already in my recipe box :)
