Stuffed Tomatoes with Goat Cheese 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This is a great recipe to try when the tomatoes and herbs are ready for harvest.

There are many advantages to goat cheese. Since one member of my family is lactose intolerant, we embraced this easy to digest cheese for its flavor. And now that I am also concerned about fat content and calories, I have learned that goat cheese is the healthy choice both those reasons.
When compared to cow milk products like cream cheese, goat cheese is lower in fat, calories and cholesterol. It also provides more calcium and fewer carbohydrates than cream cheese. Even though goat cheese has less calories, it has a full, rich and creamy flavor.


Ingredients:
* 2 tbsp olive oil
* 2 tbsp each of fresh basil,
oregano, parsley, chives; chopped
* 1 cup goat’s cheese
* 4 tomatoes
* salt to taste.


Directions:
Using a sharp knife remove the stems from the tomatoes, approx. 2” wide by 1” deep.

Roughly chop the fresh herbs and mix with goat’s cheese.

Divide the cheese mixture equally among the tomatoes and stuff.

Prepare the BBQ to medium high heat. Place the tomatoes
on the grill; cover BBQ with lid.

Cook until soft, about 7-10 minutes.


Notes: Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C and A. They also contain a cartenoids lutein and lycopene. Lutein is important for eye health and lycopene is best known as an antioxidant that helps protect DNA and cells from oxidation. This is a good recipe for anyone with blood sugar issues due to its' combination of protein and complex carbs which slows the absorption of sugars.

Wellness Tip
Soy sauce
Did you know that low sodium soy sauce might still contain 600 mg of sodium per tablespoon? That's about 25% of the -recommended daily intake. Remember - a reduced sodium food, while often better than the original, is not always a low sodium food.

Recipe
Ginger-Carrot Soup
Category: Soup
Description: Usually found in tropical gardens, ginger root - which is actually an underground stem, or rhizome - sprouts large pink and orange flowers that look as if they've been carved out of wax.
Although they are a much more common sight in home gardens, carrots (a member of the parsley family) aren't given to such showy blooms. Nevertheless, carrots pack a nutritional punch as impressive as any ginger blossom.

Put the two roots together and you've got one of the most delicious flavor combinations I know of. Buy smooth ginger pieces (wrinkled ones are old and dry) and peel the skin away. Ginger is a wonderful digestive aid that strengthens the lining of the upper gastrointestinal tract, protecting against ulcers and parasites. The carotenes from carrots fortify the immune system and help maintain healthy skin and hair. When buying carrots, avoid those with cracks and be sure to remove carrot greenery, as it leaches moisture and vitamins from the roots.
