Rich summer tomato recipe

tomato recipe

Ever wished tasting your favorite tomato and potato both in one dish?  Try this healthy Potato Stuffed Tomato recipe I grabbed from

This is a good recipe if you are controlling serving size and can be an entree or side dish.  Whichever you want it, it tastes good, healthy and easy to make.


8 tomatoes
3-4 red potatoes
1/2 green chili
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon cumin-coriander powder
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons vegetable oil (I prefer olive oil)
salt pepper to taste
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


Wash the tomatoes.  Slice the top off of each one and scoop the seeds and juice out of the tomatoes and into a large bowl.  Set aside.

Microwave the potatoes for about 8 minutes, and let cool.  Mash the potatoes (keep the skin on).  After mashing, add the cumin-coriander powder, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.  Then, combine the mashed potatoes in the bowl with the tomato juice and seeds.  In a small pan, saute the chopped garlic and green chilis in vegetable (or olive) oil.  Add this to the mashed potato mixture.

After mixing thoroughly, spoon the mixture into the hollowed tomatoes.  Top with shredded cheese.

Bake at 400F for 25 minutes, or until the cheese has slightly browned.

Hmm, yummy!

Remember, use the reddest tomato!
