Sunflower Balsamic Baby Plum Tartlets are perhaps one of my favourite quick and easy yet elegant dishes to prepare as a starter, snack or as a main dish. Colourful and yet really tasty. I love the combination of tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. Sometime, I like to add caraway seeds too but I wanted to keep this dish simple.

  1. Pre-soak the sunflower seeds in filtered water for at least 30 minutes. (Though, I prefer leaving to pre-soak overnight).
