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.

Farmer's Market Pasta

Is there anything better than a big bowl of pasta with a ton of chunky sauce with tomatoes and mushrooms, lots of Italian flavors, some of our super simple vegan almond parm, fresh herbs... oh my! I have to tell you that pasta is one of those things that I think I could eat on a daily basis. It's just so satisfying and filled with "stick to your ribs" goodness. This particular pasta recipe came to me one day as I was unpacking the goodies I had bought at the framer's market. Is it only me or are farmer's markets so unbelievably beautiful and special that it's practically a given that you will over shop? I was standing in the kitchen with what seemed to be my weight in tomatoes, and so many mushrooms the drawers of the fridge wouldn't close. It was right then and there, about 6 years ago that I decided to make pasta for lunch that day. Our farmer's market pasta has become a tradition ever since.
