Six ingredient stuffed tomatoes with whole grains can be eaten as part of a main dish or as a vegetable side.

Quinoa Stuffed Tomatoes via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchenMost of my recipes are inspired of the game “What’s in my fridge?”. This usually happens at the end of the week, when there are leftovers or a few items here and there from other meals of the week. I feel like I’m en episode of Chopped and Ted Allen is giving me a mystery basket to cook with.
Quinoa Stuffed Tomatoes via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchenI used leftover quinoa, or you can use essentially any whole grain you like in this recipe. If you don’t have any leftover quinoa, you can always use this quick alternative.
This recipe can be easily adapted with the flavors you like. I added spinach, mushrooms, and garlic because that was what was in my fridge!

Have leftovers? The next morning, I reheated a quinoa stuffed tomato with a fried egg on top. A fried egg on top can make everything better.. am I right?
Now you can never say when you open your fridge, “I have nothing to eat!”. Just play “what’s in my fridge” and you’ll be surprised what you can come up with!

  1. We’re on the same stuffing-page today! These look delish! I once made a similar stuffed tomato, but with breadcrumbs instead of quinoa from one of Ottolenghi’s books (maybe Plenty) and it was SO good, but I like the idea of quinoa even better for more protein! Great pics too!
