Traditionally a sweet pudding, this savoury version of the French clafouti is made with small cherry tomatoes taking the place of the usual cherries, and soft goat's cheese. Serve with a rustic, wholegrain bread and a mixed leaf salad with sliced mushrooms and hazelnuts.
Vary the cheese to your own taste – grated Gruyère, Cheddar, Parmesan and crumbled Stilton would all make good choices. * Instead of cherry tomatoes, try chopped grilled peppers or sautéed button mushrooms.
Had a glut of tomatoes and didn't want to make soup. This recipe is very versatile as you can mix in what you like. I added spring onions, yellow peppers and feta cheese. I thought it might be like an omelette but it was more like a batter which made it a substantial meal. - 28 Sep 2011
Very easy to make, but tastes delicious. Has fast become a favourite quick and easy weeknight dinner or weekend brunch. We've experimented with adding different things to this recipe, including spring onions, chopped bacon and tinned tuna. - 27 Mar 2010
