Cherry tomato mozzarella clafoutis

179287 HERO

Clafoutis, also sometimes spelled clafouti, is a baked dessert which originated in the Limousin region of south-central France. Its name, which derives from the word clafir, meaning “to fill,” provides an accurate hint as to its preparation, which involves lining a dish with cherries and then “filling it up” with a batter mixture. A traditional clafoutis is always made with cherries, although many cooks have adapted the dish to center around their favourite fruits or even savoury ingredients like this one here ...

Ingredients:
Serves Four
275g mozzarella
200g cherry tomatoes, halved
2 cloves of garlic
1tbsp thyme
15ml olive oil
1tsp sugar
275ml milk
3 eggs
2tbsp flour
sea salt
freshly ground pepper

Method:
Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Grease a pie dish and arrange the cherry tomatoes on the base, drizzle with the oil, sprinkle with thyme, garlic, seasoning and sugar. Place in the oven and cook for ten minutes.

In a bowl, beat together the milk, eggs and flour to form a smooth batter. Place the mozzarella on the base of the pie dish integrated with the tomatoes. Add the batter, place in the oven, reduce the temperature to 180°C and bake for 25 minutes, serve immediately.

You could try some sliced/diced red peppers, either roast them first, or cook them in the oven as you would the tomatoes in the recipe ... I would give them longer than ten minutes though, depending on your oven ...

Spinach could also work well ...

If you try these suggestions do please come back and let us know how it went.

All the best Jan
