  • 20 cherry tomatoes, preferably round (not oblong plum tomatoes)
  • 100g soft cream cheese such as philadelphia
  • 5 tablespoons of green pesto
  • 40 pine nuts (optional)


    1. Wash and halve the cherry tomatoes, scooping the central watery seeded part out.
    2. Whip or beat the cream cheese with a fork to soften.
    3. Using a teaspoon, spoon the cream cheese into the centre of the tomato halves.
    4. Top with a few drops of pesto in the centre, making sure that the white of the cream cheese is still visible.
    5. Top each one with a pine nut (optional), and serve lined on a dish.
