10 Ways With Cherry Tomatoes

It’s time for a recipe round-up once more! Today, we’re looking at cherry tomatoes. I have a real love-hate relationship with them: I can’t stand raw tomatoes at all, but when these are cooked, they often lend just what is needed to the dish. Here’s 10 recipes using them for you to try!

1. Strolling Rigatoni

Our second Hello Fresh meal was rigatoni with cherry tomatoes and mozzarella, which was surely going to be an interesting one. The cherry tomatoes here help to create the sauce for the pasta. 

2. Chinese Fajitas

This crazy fusion meal includes cherry tomatoes as a way to bring our normal Mexican tortilla filling into the Chinese flavour.

3. Mixed leaf salad with tomatoes cooked in garlic

We originally used vine tomatoes for this recipe, but cherry tomatoes would also work – although they won’t look quite as interesting, granted!

4. Shakshuka

Traditionally we’re a bit lazy and only use tinned tomatoes. Add some fresh cherry tomatoes alongside the red peppers right at the start to get a much fresher taste.

5. Bread bowls

Chopped cherry tomatoes will liven up just about any soup. They are especially good alongside basil and cannellini beans.

You can put whatever you want inside these pizza pockets! If you do want to go the tomato route, cherry tomatoes are the perfect choice. Lots of flavour, but when chopped into quarters they don’t take up so much room!
