Summer Vegetable Tian

We really enjoyed this.  It didn't take as long as I thought it would to put it together either.  I'll be making this again! I forgot to take an after picture, this one is from the website below that I found this recipe on :)


Summer Vegetable Tian

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1 medium yellow squash
  • 1 medium potato
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • to taste salt & pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Italian cheese

  • Instructions:

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Finely dice the onion and mince the garlic.  Saute both in a skillet with olive oil until softened (about 5 minutes).

  • 2. While onion and garlic are sauteing, thinly slice the rest of the vegetables. 

  • 3. Spray the inside of an 8 x 8 square or round baking dish with non-stick spray.  Spread the softened onion and garlic in the bottom of the dish. Place the thinly sliced vegetables in the baking dish vertically, in an alternating pattern. Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper and thyme. 

  • 4. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove the foil, top with cheese and bake for another 15 - 20 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.  

  • My notes:  I did not use the thyme.  I also don't recommend putting it back in the oven for that long after putting these cheese on. Ours melted so much it was almost non-existent.  Next time I will bake it for 45 minutes and then add the cheese for the last 5!
