Stuffed Tomatoes

I really, really, really love to stuff things. My experience is usually stuffing things in my face. Or in a tortilla or pasta shell or something. As I am really trying to be diligent to moderation in all things, especially where bread and sugar are concerned, I need to find new things to stuff.  I find that there is some satisfaction in stuffing vegetables (or technically a fruit here) with still more veggies.  It is grain free, dairy free, sugar free which (amazingly) does not always equate to taste free!

Stuffed Tomatoes

4 large beefsteak tomatoes
2 T Coconut or Olive Oil
2 chicken breasts, grilled
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 large summer squash, diced
1 handful of fresh basil, chopped
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 tsp of Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp nutritional yeast (optional)

Cut the tops off the tomatoes, and scoop out centers with a spoon, and chop them (the centers) up. Heat the oil in a pan, then add the tomatoes innards, garlic, onion, and squash and stir fry until they reach desired tenderness. Add the seasonings, the chicken and pine nuts. Then divide the filling evenly between the 4 tomatoes.

If stuffing is too much work, then just chop up the whole tomato and kinda stir fry everything together. Now all this talk about stuffing has got me craving...stuffing, and turkey and gravy, and pumpkin pie. Moderation? Aw STUFF IT!
