What do I serve for a vegetarian appetizer?

Stuffed Tomatoes

  • 4 large beefsteak tomatoes
  • 4 tbsps cottage cheese (or cream cheese)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 green pepper, de-seeded and diced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

Slice tops off tomatoes. Remove the seeds and drain upside down. Rub the cottage cheese through a strainer to achieve a smooth consistency, add a little milk if necessary. Stir in seasonings, and stuff the tomatoes with the mixture. Dry roast the pumpkin seeds in a frying pan until they are golden brown and sprinkle over the tomatoes. Chill until ready to serve.

A good and easy recipe .I feel it can substitute as a salad item too.Using Cottage cheese maybe makes it a good dieters meal itself.
