Low-Carb Baked Stuffed Tomatoes

Everyone's used to stuffed tomato recipes including some sort of salad inside it - chicken salad, tuna, egg - something. But this is totally different and was a great side to go along with the southwest chicken recipe I made to go with it. I totally forgot, though, to take a pic of the finished product LOL

Low Carb Baked Stuffed Tomatoes


* Red Ripe Tomatoes, 3 plum tomato - cut in half, insides scooped out
* Spinach, fresh, 20 leaf (chopped fine)
* Garlic, 3 cloves (crushed)
* Olive Oil, 2 tbsp
* Parmesan Cheese, 4 tbsp
* 4C Low-Carb Breadcrumbs, .75 cup
*red pepper flakes, 1/4 tsp

Preheat oven to 400. Combine spinach, breadcrumbs, garlic & red pepper flakes in a small bowl - set aside.

Cut tomatoes in half lengthwise and remove seeds & juice. Using a spoon, fill with bread crumb mixture. Place in a shallow baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt & pepper. Cover with aluminum foil.

Bake 30 minutes. Remove from oven, uncover and top with Parmesan cheese. Broil 1 or 2 minutes more until lightly browned.
