Baked Lemon & Parsley Stuffed Tomatoes

Updated: Jun 7, 2018



Straight from Veggie Mama | Serves: 4 large tomatoes| Time: ~40 min


Ingredients

4 large #tomatoes

EVO

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, minced

4 medium #mushrooms, diced

1/4 lemon

1 cup breadcrumbs

Handful of chopped parsely

Crumbled feta or goat cheese (couldn't find vegan)

S&P

Chili flakes (optional)

Parmesan cheese (I used vegan)


Warning: Tomatoes are high in potassium and can apparently be detrimental to people who have certain types of kidney disease. My personal potassium levels are healthy, so I have not had to avoid them. Be sure to ask your doctor.

Instructions

In a large frying pan, saute one onion chopped fine and a clove or two of garlic, minced, in a little olive oil and butter over medium heat.


Cut the tops off your tomatoes, use a knife to run around the ribs and turn the contents out into a bowl. Salt the insides of the tomatoes a tad and turn them upside down to drain.


Chop the tomato innards and add to the onion and garlic with 4 medium mushrooms, diced, about a quarter of a lemon, zested (and the juice of about half), a cup of breadcrumbs, a handful of chopped parsley, some crumbled feta or goat cheese, and plenty of salt and pepper. We did chilli flakes, too, because they are a staple.


Saute for a bit until everything is golden and the breadcrumbs and veggies have absorbed the tomatoey lemon goodness.


Stuff the tomato shells with the mixture, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with flaky sea salt, and top with grated Parmesan-style cheese.


Bake in a hot oven 20 minutes or so until everything is cooked through. (Oops! We forgot to bake, but honestly, I think I preferred the cold tomato with the warm stuffing.)


Good News: According to One Green Planet, Vitamin D is an important mineral for good kidney health and mushrooms are the best whole food, plant-based source. Vitamin D has been found to regulate kidney function and may help prevent kidney disease.
