Cherry Tomato Tulips
  • 20 cherry tomatoes
  • 20 steamed green beans
  • 4 Tbsp cottage cheese
  • pinch of salt optional
  • 2 sun dried tomatoes
  • 3 basil leaves
  1. Finely mince the basil leaves and the sun dried tomatoes
  2. In a small bowl mix the cottage cheese with the basil and the sun dried tomatoes
  3. Steam the green beans for 5 minutes only, they should not be overcooked otherwise they will be too soft to hold the tomatoes.
  4. Wash the cherry tomatoes and make an X incision half way; do not go too low otherwise the tomatoes will open too much and the filling will get out.
  5. Remove the tomato seeds and insert a skewer at the bottom of the tomatoes in order to create a small hole
  6. Gently insert one green bean in each tomato creating your tulips
  7. Fill the tomatoes with one or two teaspoon of cottage cheese mix
  8. Have fun creating an edible art presentation!!
