Winter is almost here in Texas, but would believe we have more tomatoes than we did all summer? With the days much shorter it is taking them forever to ripen so we have a bunch of green tomatoes. Besides fried what the heck do you do with them? So I thought about it and came up with this dish…….let me tell you it is awesome!
- 6 green tomatoes sliced
- 3/4 cup quinoa
- Garlic salt (a few shakes per layer)
- 1 1/2-2 cups grated medium cheddar cheese
- 1 can vegetable stock
Heat oven to 350. In a glass baking dish either spray or grease to help from sticking. Slice tomatoes, put broth in a microwave proof cup or bowl, on high heat cook for 2 minutes. Grate cheese.
Layer in oven proof dish, half the tomatoes then half the quinoa, about half the cheese and sprinkle some garlic salt on it. Make another layer doing the same thing. Poor heated vegetable broth over the ingrediants, put a lid on it and bake for 45 minutes.
If you are vegan you could omit the cheese and give it a go. This dish is loaded with flavor and good for you.
As always we hope you enjoy.
