|they look harmless|
My second question deals with why I took that many lbs. of tomatoes back with me but oh, well. I had this assumption that I'd just figure out something. I got a bag of spelt berries which I'm pretty sure will solve world hunger. Those things when cooked (they take about 45 minutes) increase in size like an angry incredible hulk. I also don't give two *****s if they're paleo, gluten-free, or fad diet friendly. I just know that I hate rice and I get tired of whole wheat pasta at times.
So HERE WE GO:
1 cup of cooked spelt berries, can sub quinoa, rice, pasta, whatever
add to that cooked bumper crop vegetables: I used eggplant, peppers, mushrooms
To make it all stick together, add 1 cup of daiya or mozzarella cheese
Pre-heat the oven to 350. Cut the tops off your 'maters and make a gentle effort in expelling some of the seeds. Stuff those bad boys and happily pack them in some Pyrex. Bake for about 35-45 minutes depending on how soft you like your stuffed tomatoes.
Calories? Yes, I would consider two tomatoes (depending on the size) as one serving around 250 Calories, 8 g protein, and 7 g fiber. If you're diabetic, I'd say this runs around 30-35 g Carbohydrates or two servings. You might want to decrease the spelt berries and add in cannellini beans (they are lowest in the bean/flatulence world and one of the best in protein).
