I remember my Mom making these Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes when I was a kid. And I still love them because not only are they delicious, they are super easy, no cook, quick and Weight Watchers friendly at only 2 WW points on my plan!
I grew up on a lot of Weight Watchers and "light" recipes because my Mom cooked healthy food and followed the WW program herself for many years. Honestly, it was just normal healthy eating to me and I never thought much of it. These Stuffed Tomatoes are great anytime of the year, but especially when fresh tomatoes are in season! They make a great quick lunch for home or work or a healthy dinner.
Sometimes my kids complain about eating Weight Watchers recipes, but they also love many of them. And they don't even realize they are eating a WW recipe half the time anyways. And of course I don't tell them until AFTER they tell me how much they love it. I've lightened up a few of my regular recipes to make them WW friendly and my kids actually like my WW Butter Chicken , WW Creamy Lemon Pasta and WW Blueberry Cornbread better than the original! Seriously, these recipes are so good you'd never even know they are Weight Watchers friendly.
These tomatoes stuffed with tuna only need a few ingredients:
- fresh tomatoes
- canned tuna
- green onion
Cut top off the top of each tomato with a small paring knife (same way you'd hull a strawberry)
Scoop insides from tomatoes (leaving about a ¼ inch shell) and set aside insides of the tomato (tomato pulp) in a small bowl.
In a large bowl, combine tuna, mayonnaise, chopped celery, green onions, pickles and tomato insides together.
Spoon tuna mixture back into tomatoes, dividing evenly between all tomatoes.
You will need a cutting board, a small bowl, a spoon, a sharp knife for this tomatoes recipe.

🥫 Canned Tuna Benefits
Canned Tuna is such a great source of protein, but it's also economical, easy and makes for quick and healthy meals. Tuna provides an important dietary source of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids needed for good heart health, brain function and normal growth and development. Canned tuna is also good source of selenium, Vitamin D and is low in fat. You can read more about the benefits of canned tuna HERE.
