Veggie-stuffed Tomatoes


  • 4 medium tomatoes
  • 1 small carrot
  • 3 green onions, diced
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 5 sun dried tomatoes
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cup Panco crumbs
  • 3 to 4 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • Optional: sprinkle of grated parmesan cheese


Cut a thin slice off the top of each tomato. Leaving a 1/2-in. shell, scoop out and reserve pulp. Invert tomatoes onto paper towels to drain. (Optional – reserve tomato tops)

Meanwhile, chop the veggies, garlic, oregano, basil and reserved pulp. Heat 1/2 cup of veggie broth (or you can use oil to saute) in large skillet on medium heat. Saute vegetable mixture until tender. Add more broth as needed; simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. Stir in the bread crumbs.

Stuff tomatoes and sprinkle parmesan cheese if desired on top; replace tops. Place in a shallow baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350Ā° for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.Ā
