Savory Clafoutis- Zucchini and Roquefort


Zucchini and Roquefort Clafoutis

French Clafoutis, pronounced Kla-FOO-tee, is a sweet or savory dish that resembles a custard.  The most common ingredients are cherries or pears. There are also savory options that can be made with a wide variety of ingredients, but the best part is they are fast and easy to make for dinner.  I learned this simple recipe in France, and you can easily modify this according to what you have on hand.  I've even made a clafoutis within leftover Ratatouille. The taste was divine!

Many recipes I share have guidelines rather than exact measurements since I often cook "au pif" as we say in France, meaning by feel.
Your intuition is the magic touch to make something amazing. So read between the lines and make it yours   Write to me anytime if you have questions.
