Tomatoes, everywhere!

Our garden is in full swing, and we have lots of tomatoes on hand lately (no complaints here)!
If you are wondering what to do with an overabundance of them, I highly recommend the
Vegan Yum Yum recipe for Eggplant and Basil Stuffed Tomatoes. It is killer. This is the way to go if you love tomatoes or are looking for something slightly fancier (but super easy) as a side dish. It features juicy tomatoes stuffed with toasted bread that is a little crunchy on top, nicely cooked eggplant that absorbs the olive oil flavor, topped with some caramelized, tangy balsamic reduction! Delicious.

*I will say to watch out with the salt, maybe start out with a bit less than the recipe calls for - also I think whole wheat bread would work just as well as the white, for a bit more of a nutrtional punch.


  1. Delish and I am jealous. Our tomatoes are only hinting or thinking about ripening. least the ripening will happen w/ the slow growing basil.

  2. That's right, that will be perfect timing! Tomatoes + basil = heaven!
