Stuffed Tomatoes with Marigold Blossoms

Herbs used:

Sweet Basil
French marigold blossoms (petals only: snip off with scissors, leaving the green base behind)

Recipe:

12 Roma or cherry tomatoes, cut in half, seeds scooped out
1 small (4 oz.) package cream cheese, room temp.
1 sprig (about 4 inches long) Sweet Basil, stem removed
1/2 cup pecan halves
Petals from 2 French marigolds

In small food processor, put the pecans, marigold petals and basil and pulse-process until the material is chopped fine.

Put in small bowl and combine with the cream cheese, then stuff each tomato half, rounding up like with deviled eggs.

Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 24 hours before serving.

Thanks so much for posting this recipe with Marigolds and tomatoes. I just bought a dozen marigold plants, because the shop owner told me they are edible and will explode in colorful flowers in the garden.
I am so glad to find a recipe I can use, and use it I will!
All the best.
Yours,
