These baked tomatoes are stuffed with spinach and can be a side dish or the star of the plate. We add feta cheese and breadcrumb to ours but really the sky is the limit to what you can stuff inside these little lovelies.

Notes

If you are on a budget, or making this as a side dish you can swap out the Beefsteak tomatoes for different less expensive tomatoes. Romas hold up quite well, just be sure to adjust cooking time for smaller tomatoes.

This salad tastes like the kind of meal you would order in an upscale eatery. Not only is it delicious but is loaded with healthy fat from the avocado. Shrimp as a low calorie protein is grilled or pan fried with a zesty rub. If you have some pickled red onion on hand, adding it will lift the entire salad to a new dimension. Drizzle some balsamic reduction on top and you have created a simple but sophisticated salad that you will never tire of eating.
