      You cannot eat just one! I did substitute minced roasted garlic, as I had run out of fresh garlic when I first made this. It was still excellent! Also, I substituted brown rice because of personal preference. Hint: If your tomato will not stand, carefully and thinly, thinly, thinly slice the bottom to even it out for stability. Works every single time!
