Vegan Stuffed Tomatoes With Creamed Spinach Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 30 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 40 mins
1/2 cup white rice, or any other rice of choice
8 large tomatoes
1 cup cashew nuts, soaked overnight, drained and rinsed
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
7 oz spinach
1Cook the rice according to instructions on packaging and preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 F.
2Prepare the creamed spinach. Add the cashews to a blender or food processor together with the garlic, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, water and salt.
3Add the spinach to a non-stick saucepan and cook for 1-2 minutes, until wilted. Then, pour in the cashew 'cream' and cook for around 1 minute more.
4Once the rice is cooked, remove the tops from the tomatoes and scoop out the pulp (this can be used to make tomato juice or salads). Place them on a sheet of baking paper.
5Fill around 1/2 of each tomato with the cooked rice. Then, layer on the creamed spinach. Bake in the oven for around 30-40 minutes. Serve immediately, or leave in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
