Read an Excerpt

Quinoa and Pesto–Stuffed Tomatoes
Serves 4; makes 4 stuffed tomato halves
2 medium tomatoes
Sea salt
1 ½ cups sprouted quinoa
1⁄3 cup pesto
Freshly ground black pepper
Cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
4 fresh basil leaves
Shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (optional)
Cut the tomatoes in half crosswise and scoop out the flesh. Set the shells aside. Strain the flesh through a fine-mesh strainer into a bowl, pressing on the flesh to extract all the tomato juice. Reserve the juice for another use and chop the tomato flesh and set aside.
Rub a little salt into the insides of the tomato shells and place upside down on a paper towel–lined plate. Set aside for 30 minutes so the tomatoes soften a bit.
In a medium bowl, combine the tomato flesh and quinoa. Add the pesto and stir to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the quinoa mixture into the tomato halves and drizzle with oil. Top each one with a basil leaf and some cheese, if using.
