Carefully hollow out the tomatoes and set aside.

In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese alternative with celery, carrots and onion.

Add salt, pepper, chili powder, then mix to incorporate. Place in refrigerator to chill.

Crush a few Artisan Nut Thins into a small crumble. (You can do this by placing them between two paper towels and pressing on them, or by pulsing lightly in a food processor.)

Place the crumbles in a pan, sprinkle a bit of garlic powder over the crumbles, then toast over medium heat. Toss frequently for even toasting.

Pour toasted crumbles into a bowl or spread on a cookie sheet and let cool.

Fill tomatoes with a spoonful of cream cheese mixture.
