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!!!!

Fresh Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew

Fall is here and with it the Pumpkin Spice Frenzy!  With the release of Tupperware’s NEW Cold Brew Carafe, I had to jump on in!  After-all, I want to help you save time, space, waste and of course MONEY.  You probably know the average PSL Cold Brew from Starbucks is around $5 for a tall. Well this recipe will make you 6 servings for the SAME PRICE. I know amazing right?

So, why Cold Brew?  Cold Brew coffee is coffee that is brewed with cold water for 8-12 hours.  Because it is made with colder water, it is generally a bit mellower, less acidic, and has a more rounded flavor profile. It is so smooth even non-coffee lovers enjoy the velvety/chocolate undertones.  Some say it has more of a caffeine kick too, but I think that is more when you make it concentrated.  Try it out and let me know what you think!

Pumpkin Spice Cream for Cold Brew
Ingredients

  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 Tbs Canned Pumpkin Puree
  • nutmeg for a sprinkle on top

Directions
1. Insert metal filter into the Cold Brew Carafe, add coarse coffee to first fill line or regular strength, second line for concentrate strength.
2. Slowly pour filtered room temperature/cool water into Carafe. Allow the water to filter down before adding more. Fill to water fill line (where the metal filter meets the plastic funnel).
3. Cover and refrigerate for 8-12 hours.
4. Remove filter and discard coffee grounds.
5. In the Quick Shake Container, mix Pumpkin Spice Cream ingredients, seal and shake vigorously until well combined.  This will store for over a week in the fridge.
6. To serve, pour 4 oz of Cold Brew and 4 oz of Pumpkin Spice Cream over ice.  Sprinkle with nutmeg and ENJOY!

 

Yep –  It really is that simple to have your Pumpkin fix for pennies!

ENJOY!!!!

Fresh Recipe: Eggplant and Tomato Zoodles

Zoodles and more Zoodles –  Have you tried Zoodles?  I think I just like saying it – zoodles.  Okay seriously, I am in love with Tupperware’s Spiralizer and all that it can do. So for Fresh Tip Tuesday this week we made zoodles with grilled eggplant and a yummy grilled tomato sauce.  This one has a few steps and your microwave is in action, but the results were amazing and still less than 25 mins!  So fresh and healthy.  Try it out and let me know what you think!
Eggplant and Tomato Zoodles
Ingredients
1 small eggplant, peeled and sliced into 1/2″ cubes
1 medium zucchini, ends cut off, and cut in half
1/3 cup olive oil, plus a few tablespoons to drizzle
1 tsp italian herb seasoning
 2 cups (1 pint) cherry tomatoes
 1/4 onion (I prefer sweet)
salt and pepper
 6-10 leaves fresh basil
 Balsamic reduction (optional)

 

Directions
1) Start making the sauce.  Drizzle the cherry tomatoes with olive oil and a dash of salt, then cook for 8 mins in the MicroPro Grill.  Remove from microwave and let cool for 3 mins.

2) While it is cooking, assemble Fusion Master® Spiralizer fitted with the thin noodle blade and first front of zucchini. Turn handle until fully spiralized. Insert 2nd half and repeat. Put aside.

3) Transfer tomatoes to PowerChef System.  Add basil, onion and 1/3 cup olive oil, along with italian herb seasoning.  Pull cord 10 times til its blended but still chunky.

4) While the grill is still warm, add eggplant drizzled with some olive oil and sprinkle a little salt and pepper. Cook in MicroPro Grill for 8 mins.

5) Transfer zoodles to the base of the Smart Multicooker and toss with the tomato sauce. Microwave for 3-5 mins.

6) Add grilled eggplant to zoodles, toss and serve.  Top with fresh grated parmesan cheese and (optional) a basalmic reduction.  So yummy and so good for you!

ENJOY!!!!
