Mediterranean Timbale

This Mediterranean timbale recipe is a dish which despite being quick to prepare (you only need about 10 minutes) and not requiring any cooking expertise, can be considered a little gastronomic gem.

This recipe contains all the traditional flavours of the Mediterranean: feta cheese, typical of Greece; tuna belly, which in Spain is fished on the Atlantic coast; olive oil, perhaps the most distinctive food of the Mediterranean; and of course the Monterosa tomato, all combine perfectly with each other, helping to create a dish with a lot of body and flavour.

The result is an original and elegant dish, whose presentation, despite its simplicity, will surprise your guests. It can be accompanied with a sauce or a reduction to your liking.

Try it now! You won’t be able to resist making this timbale recipe—in which the Monterosa tomato pairs perfectly with the other Mediterranean flavours—time and again.
