ORNISH BAKED TOMATOES WITH GARLIC

"The tomatoes seem to "ripen" in the oven, their natural flavors combining deliciously with the basil and garlic."

  • 2 cups fresh whole grain bread crumbs
  • 1/2 bunch flat-leaf parsley, stems discarded, leaves chopped
  • 20 basil leaves, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 8 tomatoes, tops cut off, seeds removed
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Mix the bread crumbs, parsley, basil, garlic, optional salt, pepper, and sugar. Stuff the tomatoes with this mixture.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until the tomatoes are soft and the tops are golden brown.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
