Recipe: Stuffed tomatos


Stuffed tomatoes are delicious, it's one of my favourite meals. My grandma and mum made them all the time when I was younger, so healthy and so tasty. I don't think I will ever make them quite as well! A family bag of tomato's is really good value, especially if you pop to lidl students! Traditionally they're made and then added to a huge soup! When your in a hurry though or just really hungry, you can eat them on their own. I used a mix of meats, just to mix it up a little but you don't have to.

Slice the tomato tops and take our the core. Be gentle as the stem in the middle can break the bottom of the tomato. You don't want a hole down there otherwise all your filling will fall out!

Save the seeds and juice from the centre to add to your mix, it adds flavour and minimises waste.

The filling is made of red onion, mince pork, chicken breast and seasoning. Really simple, really delicious.

Stuff your tomatoes to the brim with filling! You can never have to much of the good stuff. Put the lids back on and press gently so you don't squeeze everything out. Place in a steamer and cook on medium to high heat for 15 minutes. 

Add a little soy sauce or oyster sauce to garnish, a little coriander and your good to go. A healthy and low carb dinner.

We used the excess meat mix to stuff some mushrooms, because why not? They we're pan fried and got a little crispy on the outside.. mmm. So good!
