Ingredients

  • ΒΌ cup cream cheese softened
  • 6 basil leaves finely chopped
  • black pepper
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 3 green onions green "leaves" only

Instructions

  • Mix together the softened cream cheese, chopped basil and black pepper in a small bowl, then set aside.
  • Cut a cross-section at the end of each of the tomatoes using a sharp knife. Make a hole in the opposite end for the "stem".
  • Carefully spoon the cream cheese mixture into each flower. This can get a little messy, so have some paper towels on hand for cleaning up.
  • To finish, slice the green "leaves" (or tops) of the green onions lengthways, and poke them into the hole at the base of each tomato.
  • Carefully lay them on a plate, and use one final piece of green onion leaf to tie a knot around the stems.
