Unfortunately Rae arrived late as she travelled from the other end of Perth to be with us at the Christmas party. We’ve had to make do with a picture of stuffed tomatoes from the internet, and a picture of Rae and Michelle from another time.
The cherry tomatoes with the green garnish make a very festive looking entree if arranged on a white plate.
Note from Rae: Even though the fat content of these tasty little morsels is the good kind of fat, you still need to watch how many of them you consume.
3 punnets of bit sized cherry tomatoes (that aren’t too small to scoop out the seeds from, but are bite sized)
1 cup pinenuts
2 cloves garlic
Handful of italian style fresh herbs (Oregano, Basil, Marjoram, Thyme, Parsley and Rosemary), small extra herb leaves to garnish.
15 semi-dried tomatoes
Slice a very small portion of the cherry tomatoes off at the bottom to give them a flat base to stand on their own. Cut the top off the cherry tomatoes and discard the pulp.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a food processor and blend together.
Stuff the tomatoes and arrange in the plate.
Garnish with small green leaves.
