I love comfort food, the sort of thing that makes you feel all cosy and cared for. This super easy tomato and cheese clafoutis really is comfort food and perfect for warmer weather as it is not in any way a heavy, hearty dish which you usually think of as comfort food.
This recipe for tomato and cheese clafoutis serves one person for a good meal but with a big salad on the side and maybe a baked potato would stretch to two folks for a great lunch or supper dish.
I’ve used three different types of cheese in my recipe, feta, parmesan and goat cheese. The flavours all work really well together and give this simple dish more depth than it would have if you just went with one type of cheese.
Cherry tomatoes are best for this but if you don’t have any just slice up a few tomatoes instead. There aren’t many other ingredients, just eggs, milk, corn flour, some chopped fresh rosemary and basil (love that combination of herby flavours it really makes tomatoes sing), salt and pepper and a little olive oil to grease your oven proof baking dish.
I like to use a dish I can bring to the table for this tomato and cheese clafoutis. I always feel it looks so comforting and homely bringing the actual dish the meal is cooked in to the table. Plus if you are just having this yourself you can save on washing up and eat it straight from the oven, yum!
