Yield: 6 (makes 12 halves)

Ingredients:

For the outside:

  • 6 Campari tomato (Roma tomato may also be used)

For the filling:

  • 1 cup natural tahini paste
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice (or lime juice)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup green onions
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

Directions:

  • In a mid-sized mixing bowl combine all filling ingredients and mix together with a large fork until well combined. If you have a food processor you can also process this for about 20 seconds with the s-blade attachment in place. If you plan to make a double or triple batch I recommend to use a food processor.
  • Cut each tomato in half lengthwise and lay out on a cutting board.
  • Scoop out the seeds and flesh from the inside of the tomato (these are great as a sauce ingredient for fresh sauces later in the week).
  • Fill each tomato half with 1 tbsp of the mix.
  • Garnish with left over cilantro and green onion as desired.
  • Refrigerate for up to 5 days to enjoy throughout the week. The filling will save for up to 10 days in the refrigerator.
  • Pro Chef Tip: The filling for this dish makes a lovely, quick and fresh salad dressing when whisked with additional citrus juice!

Notes:

Stuffed tomatoes make a really simple portable meal plus they are fresh and flavorful. This recipe features a "tahini cheese" which is rich in flavor and also iron, calcium and B Vitamins. The filling can be used in multiple dishes throughout the week and is especially nice as a dip on a crudites snack tray or as a dip for crackers. 
All of the ingredients in the filling work to support your body in growing healthy hair, skin and nails so this could be considered a quick and easy "beauty bite"! The healthy fats will power your focus and clarity throughout the day and because these are so simple to travel with you can enjoy as a simple power-up mid-afternoon even when you are on the run.
