First article, first recipe of … vegetables !
Wait, are you leaving already ?
When I was a student, I was really a level 0 cook, and this was the first real recipe – no, pasta with cheese does-not-count – I ever made, without any idea of what I was doing. And to my surprise, this happened :
– I was eating VE-GE-TA-BLES. In college. I knoooow!
– I mixed ingredients together, put them a pan, and a real dish came out. Pure Magic, Muggle style.
– People liked it.
And that was the most important thing. People were eating, and helping themselves to more, and we talked, and we laughed, and we were happy, cracked up on my living room floor.
It does sound cheesy (food pun, sorry, get used to it) but that is when I discovered one of the most amazing feelings in my life: taking care of people while stuffing their mouth with food. And years later, I decided I wanted to do just that for the rest of my life.

Chop roughly 5 tomatoes, put them in a strainer in the sink and lightly coat them with salt (this will remove some of the water from the tomatoes, marking your dish less “watery”)
In the meantime, mix 75g of salted butter, 75g of flour & 75g of parmesan cheese with your fingers until you have a “crumbly” paste.
Lightly coat a pan with olive oil (so the tomatoes don’t stick), put the tomatoes in, drizzle balsamic vinegar on top and finally, cover the whole thing with the crumble paste.
Put the pan in the oven at 180°C, for 25mn. And voilà!
Life Hack: You can use any vegetable or cheese you like, the possibilities are endless! Great one: goat cheese and zucchini. Will perfectly suit stubborn children and friends with no balanced diet whatsoever.
Life Hack again: If you have some crumble paste left, will feel right at home in the freezer. Thanks mum!
