You know those packages of colorful, tiny tomatoes that you see in the store or the farmer's market sometimes. Well, I saw a multicolored mixture of tomatoes, and I knew that a tiny tomato recipe was in order. I wanted to make an appetizer-esque recipe topped with pretty green scallions. What can I say, the colors just drew me in.

Cherry Tomato Bites [Vegan]



  • 2-3 dozen cherry tomatoes
  • 1 15 oz. can of chickpeas
  • 3 tbsps lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • 1 clove garlic (optional)
  • 2 stalks of green onion


  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
  2. In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic (if using), salt, and pepper.
  3. Begin to process. Add the water one tablespoon at a time to achieve a creamy, hummus consistency.
  4. Halve and de-seed the tomatoes. Dry the tomato halves off with a paper towel to remove any excess tomato goopiness.
  5. Fill a plastic bag with the chickpea mixture. Slice off one corner and squeeze to fill each tomato half.
  6. Finely dice the green onion and garnish.
