Fresh Recipe: Mini Tomato Pies

Mini Tomato Pies are kind of like mini pizzas. The flaky pie crust, fresh basil, heirloom cherry tomatoes, greek yogurt and more are not only yummy –  but have some nice health benefits as well.  Did you know tomatoes are a source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer? They are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K.  This week on Fresh Tip Tuesday I shared a simple recipe so you can plan ahead and have these yummy pies ANYTIME!

Mini Tomato Pies

Ingredients:

  • 1 package pie crust dough (I used Wewalka since it does not contain lard)
  • 6 oz heirloom cherry tomatoes
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp. green yogurt
  • 1 tsp Italian Herb Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Use a large cookie cutter or mini pie mold to cut out 4″ circle of crust. Spread the crust into silicone muffin mold so that it covers the bottom and sides.
  3. Bake until light brown, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, chop cherry tomatoes and remove seeds in a colander and add a pinch of Kosher salt, mix, and set aside to drain.
  5. Chop basil using Tupperware’s Chop N Prep.
  6. When crusts have cooled some (you may need to press up the sides if fallen), add chopped fresh basil to tomatoes and fill crusts with tomato mixture.
  7. Mix cheeses(I shredded it using the GrateMaster Shredder) and greek yogurt in a small bowl with Italian Herb Seasoning.
  8. Top tomato filled pies with the cheese mixture.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees F until cheese is completely melted, about 5 to 10 min. more.  Look for the crust to be light brown and cheese to be bubbly.
  10. Allow pies to cool briefly then pop out.
  11. Serve warm or store in FreezerMates for quick snacks or lunch during the week.  (They reheat perfect in the MicroPro Grill in just 3 mins)

Makes 6-8 mini pies.

 

ENJOY!!!!
