Foodie Friday: Veggie Stuffed Tomatoes

Happy Friday!!! This week was dragging so I’m pretty ready to ring in the weekend! I’ll be spending time with my sisters on Saturday and seeing a friend at a Tupperware party on Sunday. Wild stuff, am I right?! This will be my first Tupperware party though…anyone ever been? I’m legitimately hoping I can find a great salad container that’s round. WILD WOMAN OVER HERE!!! Anywho…on to the recipe! Today’s Veggie Stuffed Tomatoes are vegan, gluten free, and perfect for a light summery dinner. Would make a great side dish or entree and can be adjusted to fit your taste!

I served mine on a bed of romaine lettuce and the rest of the rice/veggie mixture. I ended up cutting up the tomato and eating it inside the lettuce leaves with some salsa. Delicious!

  1. These look awesome! And a great idea to do stuffed tomatoes rather than peppers. I also love that you added in nutritional yeast! I’ve never been to a tupperware party but I’ll be curious to hear how it goes.

  2. mmm these look so good!! That mixture would be delicious stuffed in peppers too! I have never been to a Tupperware party, but I totally would love to go to one. Have a great weekend!!!

  3. Okay….. so what is a tupperware party!? You buy tupperware?? If that’s the case, I’d be totally jazzed. Finding the perfect sized/shaped tupperware makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop (I think we’d party well together… us wild women).
    These are neat – I wouldn’t think of stuffing a tomato. Peppers, yes, but I’d be curious to see how the tomato held up in the heat. Love the addition of nutritional yeast.

    • The tomato takes on a roasted flavor which I love with the cheesy flavor of nutritional yeast. They soften but still hold up enough to keep the filling in.

      haha yeah wild women like us need to stick together…at tupperware parties! haha!

  4. oo I’ve never thought to stuff a tomato! what a great idea! tubberware parties have everything so i’m sure you will find that PERFECT salad container!

    • oh yeah, this would be delicious in a pepper too! haha thanks! I’ll try not to get tooo cra-zay with all the tupperware haha!
