Make your own tasty tapas, and you have a themed meal or pre-dinner snacks inspired by the Spanish.

Tapa has its origin in Spain. Today we use the term across the globe when we refer to small snacks or appetizers. And don’t we just love an easy and tasty tapas recipe that’s quick to prepare!? So Spain, here we come…



  • Small cherry tomatoes (alternatively, oysters for a bit of romance)
  • Dried basil OR dried rosemary
  • Puff pastry
  • Cooking oil spray
Cherry Tomato Sarter Recipe Easy Fast with Puff Pastry


  1. Spray your baking tray. 
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 degree celsius. 
  3. Lightly dust a bit of flour on a flat surface. You don’t want the pastry to stick to the surface!
  4. Spread the puff pastry on the flat surface, without rolling it. Keep the same thickness as in the packet. 
  5. Cut into small squares – just large enough to fit a half cherry tomato.  Put the squares on your prepared baking tray.
  6. Place one half tomato on each square. 
  7. Dust the squares with the dried basil. Some of us like more basil, …dust to your own taste!
  8. Place in the middle of your oven and keep an eye on it because it will de done within about 10 to 12 minutes.

Another option is to add feta or cream cheese and top it with fresh basil.
