Stuffed Tomato for One a "Raw" Recipe

I am starting to add "raw" recipes to our meal plans!  This is a tasty easy recipe that only requires a food processor!  Perfect if you are making lunch for one.  Of course you can double/quadruple the recipe if making for more than one.  I did have more mix that didn't fit into the tomato, you can save for later or share with a friend...perhaps put it in to a lettuce leaf!

Stuffed Tomato for One


  • 1 tomato cut in half,
  • 1/4 cup of soaked sunflower seeds (soak 1 hr in water, then drain), 
  • 1/4 teaspoon of mustard powder, 
  • half a stalk celery, 
  • finger sized carrot, 
  • 1 green onion, 
  • 1 small clove of garlic, 
  • a squirt of lemon juice to taste, 
  • Optional - Add your favorite spices. (dill, cilantro, curry, paprika, etc).
Hallow out half of your tomato, throwing all tomato remains in food processor.
Process all ingredients.
Scoop mixture into tomato half.
Enjoy this very healthy lunch beside extra celery, and carrot sticks!

Wow. This is nuts. I have just recently become more concerned about my raw food intake (just watched Food Matters last week...) and now I find you are going to add more raw recipes! THANK YOU!

Second wow. I think I have all these ingredients in my kitchen RIGHT NOW!! I may be checking out this stuffed tomato even sooner than I would have expected!

You rock. ;)
