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.
- 3 small Roma tomatoes
- 3 oz. canned tuna
- 3 Spanish olives, chopped
- 1 tsp. capers
- 1 tbls. light mayo
- salt and pepper to taste
- Cut off the top of each Roma tomato. Using a spoon, gently scrape out the seeds and pulp. Be careful not to tear the outer skin.
- In a bowl mix together the remaining five ingredients.
- Spoon tuna mixture into tomatoes and enjoy!
