Pickled tomatoes filled with cream cheese

This is one of my favorite side dishes when we grill. I'm a big fan of aromatic greek foods. The first time that I tried this filled tomato, I was really struck with it and swore to myself to make it some day. Thank God, I found this wonderful recipe thereupon. Since then I've made it anytime we grill.

Ingredients :

250g cherry tomatoes
200g cream cheese
1 tbsp. finely chopped basil
1 tbsp. finely chopped thyme
salt and grainy pepper
1 tbsp. finely chopped garlic
1/2 tbsp. pepper seeds
100 ml olive oil
50 ml canola oil
a clean jar with cover

Instructions :

Wash cherry tomatoes, cut the top of them and carefully scoop out the pulp to make a hollow with a spoon, drain off the juice and slightly sprinkle the inside of tomatoes with salt and pepper.

Combine cream cheese, half of basil and half of thyme together. Seasoning with salt and pepper. Fill cream cheese in each tomotoes brimfully. Top each tomatoes with chopped garlic.

Line filled tomatoes in the jar. Add in pepper seeds, the rest of basil and thyme. Combine olive oil and canola oil together, spice with salt. Then pour mixing oil over tomatoes and cover the jar. At least 24 hours marinade before serving.

~~ Hope you also love it as I do ~~
