Good morning folks! I was able to muster out only one recipe this weekend as I was curled up on the sofa watching the Crossfit Games. These Tuna and Egg Stuffed Tomatoes were quick to prepare, which was awesome since I only had a few minutes in between events.
It took me a few days to get over the hangover of binge watching! That had to be the TOUGHEST year to date! Yikes!!!! I feel super terrible for some of the athletes that had to withdraw for one reason or another. Way to hang in there guys! Congrats to Ben Smith and Katrin Davidsdottir! Ben you totally deserve it after 7 years in the trenches and Sara…all I can say is WOW! I think I may need to move to Iceland soon! I hope you guys put yourselves in some food comas after all that WORK!
Here is the down and dirty for this quick and healthy recipe.
What you need:
- large tomatoes of course
- 3 chopped hard boiled eggs
- 1 can tuna
- 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
- 1/2 cup chopped red onions
- 1 avocado cut into chunks
- 3 slices bacon chopped
- Dijon mustard
- Paleo Mayo (I get Mark Sisssons from Thrive Market. Sign up using my link on the sidebar!)
- fresh spinach
- feta cheese (if you want a bit of cheese. Otherwise, leave off.)
Chop up the onions, mushrooms, bacon, eggs and avocados.
In a bowl, drop in the tuna and chopped items. Add in about 1/4 cup Dijon mustard and 1/2 cup of Paleo Mayo. Use a bit more of each if you like it more mustardy or creamy. I like the mustardy taste personally.
Clean out the tomatoes. I used pretty large ones. Use a paring knife to work your way around the tomatoes to get out the insides. Be careful not to cut through the sides of the toms!
Next fill ’em up!!! Stuff the tomatoes until a little overfull with the mixture. Add on top some feta cheese if you wish to the top. I love feta and I do ok with it. I served these with some spinach. It was delish! Don’t these look so yummy!
I unfortunately only had 2 tomatoes otherwise I would have made more. I had tons more mixture and that is totes OK! One tomato was plenty for me for lunch with a little spinach, but with the leftover mixture I am just going to throw it on top of the spinach for a tasty spinach salad! I love two for one recipes!
Overall, this recipe was quick and it ended up being tasty. with all of the protein jam packed in there you will be full for forever. Who doesn’t love that!
I hope everyone is taking care of the whatever hangover you might have!
