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!
