If you no longer eat eggs but have a craving for the retro classic, deviled eggs, you’ll really enjoy these deviled tomatoes — a completely vegan rendition
I love bringing delicious, surprising dishes to get-togethers: holidays, parties, networking events, etc. I grew up in a small Midwest town where deviled eggs were the height of “fancy”!
My friend, Suzanne, brought this dish to a little get together and I was smitten…I think you will be, too!
In addition to being beautiful and delicious, every ingredient in this dish is SO GOOD for us. My favorite is the tomato! I LOVE tomatoes and use them every chance I get; I hope you will, too!
The health benefits of tomatoes include eye care, stomach health and reduced blood pressure. They can provide relief from diabetes, skin problems and urinary tract infections. Furthermore, they can improve digestion, stimulate blood circulation, reduce cholesterol levels, improve fluid balance, protect the kidneys, detoxify the body, prevent premature aging and reduce inflammation. Tomatoes consist of a large number of antioxidants that have been proven to fight different forms of cancer. They are a rich source of vitamins and minerals and exert a protective effect against cardiovascular diseases.
The health benefits of tomatoes can be attributed to an impressive amount of vitamin A, C, and vitamin K, as well as significant amounts of vitamin B6, folate and thiamin. They are also a good source of potassium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous and copper. They have dietary fiber and protein, as well as a number of organic compounds like lycopene that contribute to their health benefits. (source: https://www.organicfacts.net)
I tried making them with both cherry and small roma tomatoes. I liked the texture and size of the romas best. To get them to sit upright, I cut the tips off the pointy ends being careful to not cut through. I saved the insides and used them in a tomato sauce. This is a new favorite of mine! Let me know what you think!
