Eating My Way Through the Alphabet; Letter G

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Take a Seat at the Table: Guacamole-Stuffed Tomatoes! Avocados are so convenient to use as a modern salad alternative. Adding fresh lime, tomatoes, and herb seasonings make it a winning combination for more than a Super Bowl Party or Cinco de Mayo celebration. Whether the results are chunky or smooth, once the dish is made it needs to be eaten before the natural exposure to oxygen turns the guacamole sauce brown. The lime juice slows down the process a bit, but this is definitely not a “do ahead” recipe. Make fresh and eat fresh!
GUACAMOLE-STUFFED TOMATOES 
Ingredients:

2 romaine lettuce leaves

2 medium size tomatoes 

1 ripe avocado 

1 teaspoon lime juice

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder 

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/8 teaspoon chia seeds

Fresh cilantro 
Instructions:

Place one romaine lettuce leaf on a small luncheon plate. Take one whole tomato; remove top stem; score tomato into 8 sections leaving the bottom intact. Transfer to luncheon plate, atop romaine lettuce leaf, opening tomato to form a serving well. Scoop the flesh from the avocado and place in a mini chopper. Add lime juice, garlic powder, and sea salt. Pulse to thicken. Fill tomato centers. Top with red pepper flakes, green onion snips, and chia seeds. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
