Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

Blistered Cherry Tomatoes
Blistered cherry tomatoes.

Blistered cherry tomatoes are like little balls of intense flavour that not only add a beautiful colour to a dish, but amp up the flavours too. They're incredibly quick and easy to whip up, and you can use tomatoes that are going a bit soft for this too.


Makes approximately 1 cup.

  • 1 cup fresh cherry tomatoes
  • Drizzle of oil for frying
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 or 3 sprigs of fresh thyme (or herbs of your choice)
  • 2 or 3 sprigs of fresh basil, chopped
  • Salt and pepper


  • Heat a little oil in a fry pan to medium high heat. (Make sure its hot before adding the cherry tomatoes.) 
  • Leave them undisturbed for a couple of minutes to blister.
  • Add the fresh thyme leaves and crushed garlic.
  • Season with salt and pepper, and continue to cook, stirring occasionally for another couple of minutes.
  • Finish with some chopped fresh basil leaves.
  • Add to your breakfast for an extra burst of flavour. They are also delicious with steak or even on a lunch board too.
