Instructions
  1. 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.
  2. Cut each tomato in half lengthwise and lay out on a cutting board.
  3. 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).
  4. Fill each tomato half with 1 tbsp of the mix.
  5. Garnish with left over cilantro and green onion as desired.
  6. Refrigerate for up to 5 days to enjoy throughout the week. The filling will save for up to 10 days in the refrigerator.
  7. Pro Chef Tip: The filling for this dish makes a lovely, quick and fresh salad dressing when whisked with additional citrus juice!
Recipe 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.
