Baked Tomato With Potato & Corn

This is our Saturday Quick Lunch - Baked Tomato Cups with Mashed Potato & Corn Kernel serve with extra herbal butter toast and a cup of Camomile Honey & Vanilla Tea. What a simple and relax afternoon lunch for a sunny weekend meal.

Since I bought some potato, carrot, sweet corn and tomato to make ABC soup for dinner. I add in extra dose of potato cubes and sweet corns to make the soup so that I can use some of the potato and corn to make this Quick and Easy Lunch. If for normal day, you can just steam 1 medium size potato together with a small corn then use it to make this baked tomato cups.

2 Medium Tomato
1 Medium Size Potato
1/4 Carrot(optional), cut into thick slices
1 Corn Stick
2 Slices of Sandwich Cheese
Butter & Herbs(optional)

1. Rinse and slice the top of the tomato off and scoop out the seeds and pat dry the tomato cups and set aside.
2. Peel, and cut the potato into square chunks.
3. Remove the husk of the corn and cut it into 3 section and halves it.
4. Place the potato and corn on a plate and steam it for about 15 minutes or so until the potato are cook through and soft.
5. Mashed the potato and carrot with some pepper then add in 1 slice of cheese(tear into pieces) and 1.5 tablespoons of corn kernel and mix well.
6. Scoop the potato mixture into the tomato cups, top with some extra corn and arrange on a baking dish.
7. Add 1 teaspoon of butter and some chopped parsley(optional) or mixed dry herbs(optional) into the remaining corn kernel and mix well.
8. Scatter the corn kernel mixture around the side of the tomatoes in the baking dish and place it into the oven toaster for about 5 minutes.
9. Next the extra cheese slices on top of each tomato cups and baked in the oven for another 30 second or so..... remove and served with tea and cut fruits.

a) You can also used the frozen or can corn kernel instead of fresh corn.
b) You can place the butter herb toast together in the oven toaster with the tomato cups at the side.

This is a very Easy and Health snack for both kids and adult. If you kids do not like tomato as what it is, you can try to stuffs it with this mixture of mashed potato and corn kernel the next round when you make ABC soup.... Tomatoes have lots of important health benefits, including reduction in risks for cardiovascular diseases, colorectal cancer, inflammation, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer and thrombosis, so you should certainly consider including a cup of tomatoes in your daily diet for the maximum benefits.
