Deviled Tomatoes (recipe)


Vegetarian Express is one of my all-time favorite cookbooks because I can always rely on it to provide a simple quick accompaniment or entree to a more lavish menu. This recipe for deviled tomatoes was used to provide an accompaniment to a meal I made recently of Broccoli Gratin and Fettucine Spaghetti Alfredo. It not only provides nutritional balance but a lovely burst of red to the plating. Even better, it takes no time to put together 🙂
