Large garden heirloom tomatoes are my favorites. Their smell is so fresh and divine! Wonderful raw in a salad or in rich sauce but this time I decided to bake and stuff them for a change. This dish is perfect for summer heirloom tomatoes or store-bought large on-the-vine tomatoes. For the best flavor, serve the tomatoes slightly warm or at room temperature. Stuffed tomatoes also freeze well when cooked for later.

Core Tomatoes removing the inside flesh and seeds, don’t go to the bottom and breakthrough.

Then stuff it into the raw tomato bake for 25 min at 350 degrees A wonderful healthy easy side dish ! Try it out and make it your own. The mixture can be anything that’s mixed in with the quinoa so have fun!
This was a meat free side dish but what I love is that you can mix in anything you want with the quinoa. If quinoa isn’t your thing cooked rice would also do.
