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
Eye Protection During Sports
Do you participate in sports that involve a moving ball, swinging stick, or physical contact? These include sports like hockey, tennis, racquetball or baseball. According to the International Federation of Sports Medicine, the use of protective gear significantly reduces eye injuries in sports. Be safe, not sorry. Buy and use sport appropriate goggles or a facemask. Make eye protection a priority while you play.
