This looks like a fantastic appetizer. I found it in my mom's Lean and Luscious and Meatless cookbook and am storing it here to try soon. Each serving has only 108 calories and 1 gram of fat! If you use soy parmesan it's dairy-free.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 slices miniature party rye rounds (1/4 oz slices)
  • 4 small tomatoes, sliced (or cut 2 large tomatoes into quarters then slice--you want the slices about the same size as the bre)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 14 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese or 2 tablespoons parmesan soy cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Have a large, ungreased baking sheet ready.
  3. Place bread slices on baking sheet; place a slice of tomato on each piece of bread.
  4. Place egg whites in a medium bowl; beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until frothy.
  5. Add cream of tartar; beat at high speed until egg whites are stiff.
  6. Fold in parmesan cheese gently but thoroughly.
  7. Place a heaping tablespoonful of egg white mixture on top of each tomato; using a table knife, spread mixture, covering tomato and top edges of bread.
  8. Bake 10 minutes or until nicely browned.
  9. Serve hot.
