Did you know that tomatoes are a major dietary source of the antioxidant “lycopene,” which reportedly has significant health benefits — including reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer? (They’re also a source of folate, vitamin C, potassium, and vitamin K.)
So, when we saw that the “dinner special” at YiaYia’s Greek Kitchen (on W Atlantic Blvd, over in Margate) was something called “Roma Stuffed Tomato” — made with ground lamb, mint, tomatoes, mint, herbs and feta ($15) — we just had to have one.
Despite its slight greasiness, we found the tomato juicy, and the stuffing moist and flavorful, and scored this dish a “B-.”
[Points were also lost because the accompanying vegetables looked (and tasted) like they had just been defrosted.]
