Recipe Directions for Tuna Stuffed Tomato

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

  2. Slice off about 1/2 inch of the stem end of the tomatoes and hollow out the inside; slice just a small section off of the bottom of the tomatoes, so that they will sit flat on a baking sheet. Sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon of salt in the hollow portion of each tomato and place hollow side down on a baking sheet. Set aside.

  3. cook quinoa first in chicken stock and reduce until quarter of the water is left and add all the veggie, herbs and spice to the mix. cook until no more liquid. Add the canned tuna to the mix and mix well.

  4. Stuff tomatoes with the mixture.

  5. Drain any liquid that has been released from the tomatoes; dry the sheet pan. Turn tomatoes so the hollow side faces up and roast the tomatoes in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes or until the skin begins to turn brown and slightly blister. Remove the tomatoes from the oven and let cool slightly. Turn the oven down to 350 degrees F.

  6. Evenly divide the filling among the tomatoes. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and bake in the oven until heated through, about 5 minutes.
