How To Make Low-Carb Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes
I’m not typically inclined to stuff foods in other foods, but, when you are following a low carb diet cravings can get a little tricky. Like say, when you’re craving a tuna sandwich on thick seedy bread slices.
That was my craving and I just so happened to have a flat of local tomatoes that needed to get used up quick. So I decided it was time to stuff a food into another food 😆 Then came this Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes Recipe.
How Do You Make Stuffed Tomatoes With Tuna?
Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes are about as simple as it gets. . . no cooking required. Just make your tuna salad, cut a hole in your tomatoes, drain any excess liquid then fill the tomatoes.
There is your quick, healthy, low-carb lunch or dinner.
Are stuffed tomatoes healthy?
Yes, tuna salad and tomatoes are both healthy, nutritious foods. I go straight mayo with my tuna salad, but you can always use your preferred alternatives. Tomatoes are a nightshade, so if you are avoiding nightshades you will want to avoid this recipe.
Can you freeze stuffed tomatoes?
I’m gonna go with NO. The tomatoes would get all mushy and weird. These tuna stuffed tomatoes are great the next day after being refrigerated though.
