WW Recipe of the Day: Cherry Tomato Clafouti for Two
Here's a classic French dessert morphed into a marvelous savory main course that is super easy and 100% perfect for just 2 people.
Originally from the Limousin area and still found all over France, you'll find clafoutis made with cherries which are covered with a thick, sweet pancake style batter and then baked until golden.
A lovely café in Beaune—in heart of Burgundy—took the dish, removed the sugar and fruit, added sweet tomatoes and came up with this delicious alternative, much like a crustless quiche, which I sampled last summer.
Of course, I also had to sample a delicious glass of white burgundy wine which I highly recommend to go with this dish.

I adore the gruyere and Swiss shreds that Trader Joe's stocks. Shredding is all done and the flavor is first rate. I also used TJ's brand of Greek yogurt. I love this for its richness and proximity to yogurt found in Greece. If you are not fortunate enough to have access to Trader Joes in your neck of the woods substitute your favorite brands of yogurt and cheese.
The whole dish takes only a few minutes to assemble. This time around I made this on Saturday afternoon, refrigerated it and served it as a late Sunday breakfast.
Practicing a gluten-free lifestyle? Substitute an alternative flour such as chickpea flour for the standard white-wheat flour.
I tried it with chickpea flour, which is readily available both here and France, and actually I like it better. The texture is a little lighter and the flavor is the same.
The clafoutis will look like it has "a real crust," although there is only a scant amount of flour in the recipe. Magic!
Having a party? This recipe can be doubled and put into 2 smaller dishes or 1 larger mold to bake it. Note that the baking times may vary in this case.
Along with the clafoutis, consider a simple small green salad and a bottle of French burgundy.
