Cauliflower Puree Stuffed Tomato

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

Well, we've officially reached that point in the year where most females are hit with a lovely little condition called "bikini bod syndrome, uuuuuugh."


It's a stifling pain in the booty if you ask me. Not only are we in charge of picking out THAH MOST PERFECT OMG bathing suit for the upcoming beach vacation and pool party season, we have to reduce our loose caboose so that it can seduce the wild goose.

Wait, what?

(She's trying to explain to you that it's time to work out a whole whole whole lot so that you look too hot to trot in your new suit. And she thinks rhyming is fun.)

So how 'bout we talk about an insanely delicious stuffed tomato snack or appie that won't leave you in the fetal position in your bathtub sobbing into the new Victoria's Secret catalog because guilt is bubbling out of your pores.

These little puppies are stuffed with an herbed cauliflower puree and dotted with bacon bits and chives. And I'll tell you, the Tbs. of butter I used was actually a buttery spread made out of olive oil. And then I ate all 10 because I was alone and feeling a little emotional after flipping through the dang Victoria's Secret catalog. What?

Okay this is so simple. We have tomatoes, cauliflower, bacon, and some herbies.

And then scoop out the flesh with a spoon or a melon baller. I'm still unsettled about the word "flesh."

In the meantime, steam your cauliflower in a little colander over a little saucepan with the little water in it. Little, little, little.
