Easy and healthy meals are must for those who seem to always be busy. This tuna stuffed tomato recipe is one of my favorites to make on a night that I want an easy dinner and are great for prepared lunches for the week. Tomatoes are plentiful at the farmers’ markets right now and make this recipe extremely easy to throw together. The best part about this recipe is that you can switch it up to suit the flavors you are looking for with different spices or additions (diced apples and walnuts sound delicious too!).
1 large tomato
1 packet or tin of tuna
1/2 small red onion diced
1 1/2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise (Veganaise is a good option for those looking to make this egg and dairy free)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch and sprinkle of paprika
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut the top of the tomato off and hollow it out, removing the seeds.
In a bowl mix together the tuna, onion, mayonnaise, and spices.
Fill the tomato with the tuna salad.
Sprinkle with paprika.
