Fresh Tomatoes From the Garden
Eating healthier may always be a challenge, but summer makes it easy. Fresh tomatoes out of the garden provide great nutrients and health benefits. Ripened ruby tomatoes not only taste wonderful, but also offer a range of health benefits for everybody: an excellent source of vitamin C, plus vitamin A, potassium and fiber. Tomatoes are also high in lycopene, which works with other vitamins and minerals to aid in disease prevention.
BROILED PARMESAN TOMATOES
To make this luscious and simple lunch, peel a ripe tomato and slice it on to a baking tray. Cover with grated Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle Italian bread crumbs on top. Then top it off with crumbled bacon. Toast under the broiler for about five minutes, or until the cheese has melted and bacon is crispy.
Ingredients: Tomato, Parmesan cheese, Italian bread crumbs, bacon.
