This dish is a savory spin on the classic French "Clafoutis". The combination of vegetables, eggs and cream cheese in this dish supplies the body with almost a quarter of the daily requirement of calcium for healthy teeth and more than half of the eye-strengthening vitamin A in just one serving.

This protein-rich vegetarian tomato casserole is a perfect low-carb dinner.
