Baked, Tofu Stuffed Tomatoes

What you need: 

4 medium, slightly under-ripe tomatoes
1 (12.3 ounce) box firm tofu, mashed with a fork
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and pepper
3 dashes hot sauce (I use Texas Pete Garlic Hot Sauce)
1/2 cup water
2-4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
cooking spray
1/2 tablespoon dried parsley

What you do: 

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut the tops off of the tomatoes and core the insides. Dispose of the remnants, or save for a sauce or soup.
2. Put the tofu in a medium bowl, mash with a fork and then add the basil, oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper and hot sauce. Mix well.
3. In a small casserole dish, add in water. Spoon tofu filing into the hollowed out tomatoes. Place the tomatoes with filling in the dish.
4. Sprinkle the nutritional yeast on top of the tofu mixture. Spray a small amount of oil on top of the yeast, adding the parsley as a garnish. Bake for 15 minutes, until the yeast topping is golden brown. Serve warm.

Source of recipe: I was trying to find a good substitute for the "Tomatoes Mediterranean" my mother used to make all the time when I was a kid. So I did a little experimenting, and here is what I came up with. It's fast and delicious!

This was delicious. I have tons of tomatoes and easy access to lots of tofu so this recipe was perfect.  I think the only thing that I would add is 3-4 cloves of garlic to the tofu mix to give it a little kick.  I used Tabasco sauce and red pepper as the hot sauce and served it with rice. 

However, I used nearly twice the amount of tofu and 6 tomatoes and the recipe really only served enough for 2.
