Vegan Stuffed Tomatoes

DSC_0131

I was reading Dragon's blog earlier today. Her stuffed tomatoes were so lovely; I decided I needed them. It was quick, easy and delicious. I followed the recipe at Dragon's Kitchen but instead of the cheese, I used nutritional yeast to make a vegan version. I stuffed the filling into small heirloom tomatoes. With all the herbs, they were so flavorful that I didn't need the cheese.

Those stuffed tomatoes look incredible! I'm thrilled that you made them and I'm curious about the yeast you used. What is it? Is it like tofu?

I have been looking for a stuffing for peppers, will go and check out Dragon's blog. Those look yummy!

I like this stuffing because it has no cheese. (Sometimes I just have to keep watch of cheese.) Do you think it will still be okay without the yeast?

Dragon: nutritional yeast comes in flakes and powder and is used by some vegans to achieve a cheesy flavor. And, thanks for the great recipe.

OhioMom: thanks

JennDZ: The Leftover Queen: thanks and make them now if you can.

js: absolutely. I happened to be addicted to NY, but with enough herbs and seasoning, they should be delicious. (we actually ate a couple without the yeast because I forgot to put it in each one.)
