Tarragon is great with chicken but it is also wonderful with vegetables. I recently came across a cherry tomato clafoutis recipe, and I loved the idea. I thought that I would make my own version of it; creme fraiche free and with whole wheat flour and also add a hint of provencal taste to it with some fresh tarragon.
It is really lovely served with a bit of lettuce, vinaigrette dressing and some slices of steamed sweet potato.
Serves 2-3 people
preparation: 15 minutes
baking 35-40 minutes 220C.
- 400 gr. cherry tomatoes
- 80 gr. wholewheat flour
- 75 gr. grated cheese (ideally Comte, but Cheddar or Gruyere work well too)
- 200 ml. milk
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup yogurt
- 1 big clove garlic
- 2 branches of fresh tarragon (or 1 tbsp. of dry one from the shop)
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- salt, pepper
- butter for the dish
Pre-heat the oven to 220C.
Grease a medium size glass oven dish with butter. Wash the tomatoes and place them at the bottom.
Mix flour, grated cheese, salt, pepper, yogurt, olive oil, eggs one by one, and incorporate the milk little by little. Then add the tarragon whole leaves and the grated garlic.
Pour the mix in the oven dish; it should almost cover the tomatoes leaving the top apparent.
Bake for 35-40 minutes.
When it’s nice and brown, remove from the oven, and leave to cool down a bit before serving.
