What a great breakfast alternative, it's healthy, filling and very tasty. Light and very flavorful. I knew that I would enjoy this tasty treat. Served on a toasted sesame bagel. Thank you for sharing. Made for CQ3 - New York

Delicious, as I knew it would be! This was such a fresh breakfast! I used the brown Kumoto tomatoes, because that's what I had on hand. So not as pretty as a bright red slice. But the flavor was great! Thanks for posting! Made for Culinary Quest 2016.
