Red Lentil-Stuffed Tomatoes

This stuffed tomato dish is healthy and vegetarian, it’s not so high in carbohydrates or fat, it is pretty low on protein and calories. Of course, you can always choose to use it as a side dish. You’ll need the pulp from 1 tomato only for the filling mixture. Eat the remaining pulp raw, as we did.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
