Looking for an easy side dish for when you have the grill going full blast this summer? Stuffed tomatoes are a healthy and quick option that go along with most BBQ feasts. We personally enjoyed these with a thick, juicy steak. It was nice to not have to turn the oven on in the house and to know we could rely solely on the grill to get our whole meal done. Swap out the cheese for whatever flavors you prefer and you've got yourself a tasty and low-calorie side dish. Enjoy!
- 2 large tomatoes
- 1/2 cup reduced-fat Cheddar or Monterey cheese, shredded
- 2 tsp. garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp. fresh parsley, minced
- 2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese, grated
Slices the tomatoes in half. Scoop out pulp and reserve in a small bowl. Chop bigger pieces of pulp and return to bowl.
Add Cheddar or Monterey cheese, garlic and parsley to pulp. Mix until combined. Use a spoon to remove excess liquid (I was able to remove 2-3 spoonfuls). Add Parmesan cheese and mix well.
Scoop 1/4 of the pulp mixture into each tomato half.
Put tomatoes on the top rack of a grill. Cook until cheese begins to melt, about 5-10 minutes. Move tomatoes to the lower rack and cook until tomatoes begin to soften and become lightly charred, about 5 minutes longer. Serve immediately.
