This is another great recipe for an appetizer, side dish, snack, and for using leftover lentil chili.

In a bowl, place the amount of lentil chili you want to use as the filling and mash with a potato masher until about half of the lentils are split open.

Wash the plum or Roma tomatoes, and cut in half lengthwise.  Cut out the stem connection.

Using a small sharp knife or a grapefruit knife, hollow out the center of each tomato half, leaving the outer flesh and skin intact.  We put the center part of the tomatoes in our salad.

Using a teaspoon, fill the cavity of each tomato half with the mashed lentil chili.

Wash the celery stalks and cut into 3-4 inch lengths.  Fill each cavity with the mashed lentil chili.

Top the stuffed tomatoes and celery with a little salsa.

Serve and enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-32)
