Oven Roasted Tomato Tulips with Tuna Salad and Avocado Puree


This recipe was part of a college project for a sculpture class. For the project I developed recipes that took inspiration from my college town, created the dishes in an artistic and sculptural way, photographed them, and put it all together in a cookbook. The flavors of the tuna, avocado, and tomatoes come together to create what I think is am almost upscale tuna melt.
