Vegan Stuffed Tomatoes for a Heat Wave


New England has been suffering from extreme heat and humidity – days with a heat index of 105°  etc.  So, I’ve been looking for some meals that I can make that don’t need any form of cooking.  Here is one easy meal that I’ve found that requires no cooking, baking or grilling:

Vegan Stuffed Tomatoes

As many large tomatoes as there are people you’re feeding.  My daughter and I have one each and use another just for more tomato.  Lettuce leaves for garnish.

I stuff the tomatoes with Mashed Chickpea Salad:


1 can (15 oz.) chickpeas, drained and rinsed

½ cup celery, diced

½ cup carrots, diced

½ cup onions, minced

1 tablespoon or so hummus (any kind you like)

1 tablespoon mustard

Dash of garlic powder

Splash of lemon juice

Place chickpeas in a medium size bowl and mash with a potato masher or fork.  Add remaining ingredients and combine.  Add more hummus for a creamier taste, if you want.

Take tomatoes and cut off the tops, scoop out the insides (I just put those into a bowl and eat them with my meal); then stuff with Mashed Chickpea Salad.  Place on a bed of lettuce and your meal is served!
