Keto Tomato Recipes

Having tomatoes in our lifestyle is a great addition you can cook and bake unbelievable dishes with. 

Our Rainbow Pizza gives you beautiful vibrant colors only from various tomato blends. Adding just a few Cherry tomatoes into our Keto Gnocchi Tomato Basil transforms just an ordinary meal into an unforgettable experience. 

Roasted Tomato Basil Soup is a dish I can not forget to mention. Once you roast tomatoes and blend them together with herbs, your kitchen will just flourish with the smell you will never forget. 

Tomatoes on Keto

Some might argue, that tomatoes do not belong to Keto Diet lifestyle because of their higher carbs compared to other vegetables like Cauliflower, zucchini, or mushrooms.

Tomatoes Carb intake might be a bit more than above vegetables, but they still have very low carbs as well as glycemic index and adding them into the dish while still controlling the portions, can be a great addition to our lifestyle. 

And our Low Carb Stuffed Tomatoes makes no exception. 

Stuffing Tomatoes

With our recipe, I have used our Bolognese Sauce and made them Mince Stuffed Tomatoes.

You can use lots of variations to stuff tomatoes with. 

Each one will give you a great meal and each one would be unique.

  • You can stuff them with cheese and leftover meat 
  • Cut vegetables mixed with cheese
  • Almond Flour or Coconut flour blended together with a bit of tomato sauce and cheese is perfect as well
  • Shirataki Rice mixed with minced beef and some cheese is another option

Salad Stuffed Tomatoes

Another great idea is to use the tomatoes raw and stuff them with one of the Keto Salad. 

Use that as a BBQ Appetizer or a starter at your Keto Party. 

Stuff them out with:

Toppings for Stuffed Tomatoes

Even though I have used one of the simplest choices and topped them up with plain cheese, which perfectly melts, you can add more.

  • Sprinkle a bit of Keto Breadcrumbs, which you can make by drying and grinding our Keto Farmers Bread or any Keto Bread in that sense. 
  • Top it up with crushed nuts, which you can slightly roast
  • A mixture of herbs from your garden gives you a great selection as well
  • Fill them up with spinach and cheese for the perfect Iron Boost
Are Tomatoes Good for Weight Loss?

Because tomatoes contain lots of water and fiber, they are considered one of the great vegetables when someone is looking to lose those extra pounds. 

Their soluble fiber makes you feel full much faster and therefore you might not need to eat as much.

But the most important part of weight loss is, that you have to consume fewer calories than you burn. 

That leads me to my belief, that if you do like tomatoes, they are great and extra healthy vegetables, but everything needs to be consumed in moderation. 

How many Carbs are in Stuffed Tomatoes?

Taking our recipe into consideration, 1 portion contains 5 carbs and 1 gram of Fiber. 

That would give you a perfect 4 g of Net Carbs per portion. 

As you see in the images, I have used 3 Beefsteak Tomatoes and 3 medium size tomatoes. 
As there is no way you can consume whole beefsteak stuffed tomato on its own, I have divided the whole recipe into 9 portions.

How to bake Keto Stuffed Tomatoes with Ground Beef

Kitchen Gadgets needed:

Ingredients Needed:

  • Tomatoes
  • Minced Beef
  • Diced Bacon
  • Diced Fresh Celery
  • Onion
  • Garlic Cloves
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Heavy Cream
  • Fresh Oregano
  • Fresh Marjoram
  • Grated Cheese

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON KETO STUFFED TOMATOES RECIPE

First Step: Stuffed Tomato Ingredients

Prepare all of your ingredients beforehand. 

As you see, I have chosen 3 Beefsteak Tomatoes and 3 medium size tomatoes. It really depends on which ones you prefer. The baking time is very similar and does not need to be adjusted. 

For Bolognese Sauce, dice your onion, garlic, bacon, and celery. 

Fresh herbs should be cut into small pieces as well.

Second Step: Cook Keto Bolognese Sauce

Start with your onion and garlic. Place them into a cooking pot sprinkled with olive oil and caramelize for few minutes. 

Once caramelized, add bacon and minced meat, mix and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. 

Add diced fresh celery, herbs, salt & pepper, and mix and cook for another 10 minutes.

As of last add tomato sauce and heavy cream and fully combine.

More detailed step-by-step instructions about making our Keto Bolognese Sauce can be found on its special post with various tips, tricks, and ideas. 

If you can manage to make bolognese sauce the night before, the best. Overnight, the flavors of the sauce combine, and the whole sauce thickens fully, which is the best for filling your veggies.

Third Step: Cover and Cook Keto Bolognese Sauce

Cover with the lid and cook for approximately 40 minutes at a medium temperature.

Fourth Step: Cut top of Tomatoes

Cut top or the head of each tomato. Do not throw it as you will use it later to close the tomato.

Fifth Step: Clean inside of Tomatoes

Using a small spoon, hollow out each of the tomatoes. 

Scoop out all of the seeds as well as all the liquid, which will avoid tomatoes being too watery after baking. 

You can add the inside of tomatoes into your bolognese sauce if you wish.

Sixth Step: Fill Each Tomato with Bolognese Sauce

Again, using your spoon, fill each of the tomatoes with bolognese sauce up to the top of the cut tomato.

Seventh Step: Top Up with Grated Cheese

Top it up with Grated Cheese.

As an alternative, you can use keto breadcrumbs of toasted crushed nuts. Any herbs, I would suggest sprinkling only at the end once the stuffed tomatoes are baked.

Eight Step: Bake

Bake in the oven at 200C or 400F for approximately 30 minutes. 

You can also bake them on your BBQ Grill or an Air Fryer. 

Tips and tricks:

Portions – After having the meal and because of using 3 beefsteak tomatoes and 3 medium tomatoes, I have split the whole recipe into 9 portions.

Herbs – if you would like to sprinkle your stuffed tomatoes recipe with herbs, I would suggest doing that step only once the tomatoes are already baked. Herbs will burn in the oven very easily and pretty quickly. 

Baking – You can choose to bake those Keto Stuffed Tomatoes either in the oven, on your Grill, or on an Air Fryer.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Can you make Baked Stuffed Tomatoes ahead of time?

You can prepare all of your baked tomatoes ahead of time even the day before. On the day, you can either place them into the oven or on your BBQ grill. 

You can even make small Keto Appetizers, by stuffing up small or cherry tomatoes and serve them not baked. Bolognese sauce is already cooked fully, so it will be just a perfect idea.

Can you bake Stuffed Tomatoes in an Air Fryer?

Instead of the oven or your BBQ, you can cook those Low Carb Stuffed Tomatoes in the Air Fryer as well. 

It will be even faster as it only needs approximately 15 minutes on 175C or 350F.

How do you store Mince-Stuffed Tomatoes?

Placed into the glass container or your casserole, cover them tightly, and store them in the fridge for up to 2 days. 

Anything longer I would suggest freezing. 

Can you freeze Keto Stuffed Tomatoes?

You can certainly freeze those Minced Meat Stuffed Tomatoes. Bear in mind that because tomatoes contain lots of liquid, they might become a bit soft after unfreezing.

I would personally suggest freezing bolognese sauce and use that for the day of preparation.
