Tuna-Stuffed Tomatoes

Published by on

I can’t believe this semester is complete! Grades are entered, final meetings attended, and graduation is on Sunday. Wow.
With things slowing down a bit on campus, I am able to work from home much more often. This is appealing for many different reasons, of course, but one of my favorites is that I no longer have to pack a lunch everyday. I have the option of eating something other than the standard sandwich or reheated leftovers (should I feel so inclined…) Plus, now that the days are getting warmer I can enjoy my meal out on the deck as well. I love the summer.

My lunch today was a quick meal-for-one that comes together in less than five minutes. Essentially, the inspiration came from my need to use up tomatoes mixed with my craving for tuna. Behold: tuna-stuffed tomatoes. I included a few chopped Spanish olives and capers for a nice tangy bite. (If this is not your cup of tea, feel free to leave them out.) Serve these stuffed tomatoes with you favorite sides and you have a delicious, protein packed meal in minutes.
