  • Baking Dish
  • Mixing Bowl


  • 6 medium Tomatoes
  • 2 cups Cooked Quinoa
  • 3 oz Crumbled Goat Cheese
  • 2 Tbsp minced Fresh Basil
  • 2 Tbsp minced Fresh Flat-Leaf Parsley, Cilantro, or Other Fresh Herbs
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp fresh-cracked Black Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan Cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 350° F. Lightly grease a rimmed baking dish large enough to hold all of the tomatoes. Cut the top off of the tomatoes and gently scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds. Arrange the tomatoes, cut-side up in the baking dish.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the quinoa, goat cheese, basil, parsley, salt, and pepper and stir to combine. Gently spoon the quinoa mixture evenly into the tomatoes.
  • Bake until the tomatoes begin to soften and the quinoa filling turns golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese evenly over the tomatoes and bake until the cheese melts, an additional 4-5 minutes.
