In 15 minutes, you can take your taste buds on a trip to Greece with refreshing tuna-stuffed tomatoes.

Ingredients

5
large tomatoes
2
cans (4.5 oz each) light tuna in olive oil, undrained
1
can (15.5 oz) great northern beans, drained, rinsed
1/4
cup chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
2
tablespoons capers, drained
3
tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2
teaspoons finely chopped garlic
1
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
5
sprigs fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Cut very thin slice from bottom of each tomato so it will stand upright. Cut thin slice from top of each tomato; scoop out tomato flesh, leaving tomato shell. Remove seeds from tomato flesh; chop enough tomato flesh to measure 1 cup.
  • 2 In medium bowl, toss chopped tomato, tuna, beans, chopped parsley, capers, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • 3 Spoon tuna mixture into hollowed-out tomatoes. Garnish with parsley sprigs.
Tips  

Use a grapefruit spoon to easily hollow out the tomatoes.

Try using seared fresh tuna steaks in place of the canned tuna.
