For the roasted vegetables

For the savory clafoutis


Preheat the oven to 450°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the diced zucchini and eggplant over the baking sheet, then drizzle with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat the vegetables with the oil, then roast for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest while you prepare the savory clafoutis.

Lower the oven temperature to 350°F (175°C). Oil a 9-inch (23-cm) springform pan, then line with a large square of parchment paper, carefully pushing it to the bottom of the pan and pressing against the sides so they are covered to the top of the pan.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, milk, cream, and salt together. Add the sifted flour and whisk to incorporate. Stir in the fresh herbs and chives.

Scatter the roasted zucchini and eggplant over the bottom of the prepared springform pan. Give the savory clafoutis batter another quick whisk, then pour over the roasted vegetables. Dot the clafoutis with the cherry tomatoes, stem side up, then tuck slices of goat cheese in between.

Bake the savory clafoutis for 30 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool to room temperature.


Sprinkle the cooled savory clafoutis with toasted sliced almonds. Slice and serve with a leafy green salad.


Store leftover savory clafoutis in an airtight container. Reheat slices in a low oven (300°F/150°C) before serving.
