My mother was the queen of stuffed tomatoes. She had so many recipes for them. Stuffed with meat, rice, beans, you name it she stuffed 'em, but no recipe was as delicious as her Provençal tomatoes. Her version was stuffed with lots of breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese, a ton of herbs and garlic, mine is vegan of course, and a total healthy treat.
