Stuffed Provençal Tomatoes

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.

What I love most about this recipe is that it takes almost no active cooking time, almost all the magic happens in the oven with minimal fuss, it's easy to make a ton for a dinner party AND people think you slaved over this delicious side dish... and no one EVER knows the truth (insert Little Mermaid Ursula laughs here).

When it comes to eating a healthy meal at home, part of the secret to have it be delicious, filling and fun, is to feel like you've made something special, that your plate looks beautiful and like you took your time to make it. This recipe fits all those bills.

Oil Free Crispy Potatoes

Is it just me or does anyone else refuse to eat a burger without a side of fries? I just love them! The combination of a perfectly golden and crisp starchy potato with some ketchup. They really are the perfect side to any burger or sandwich, but the deep frying doesn't make it the healthiest of choices. Now don't get me wrong, I still indulge in traditional french fries every once in a while, but when you're trying to eat a bit healthier and still get your diner fix with a burger and fries combo, learning how to roast without oil can really be a lifesaver. That's exactly what I'm teaching you in today's video.

We're learning how to make delicious and very crispy potatoes, in the oven, and without any oil whatsoever. You won't believe how simple this is, and you still get to enjoy your side of "fries". Enjoy the video, recipe and printable below!
