From the Provence region

This excellent Provençal vegetable dish is typical of the region and a good example of how creative the Mediterraneans are with their vegetables.

‘Tian’ is actually the name of the cooking dish used. You will need a large ovenproof dish, made of either porcelain or cast-iron.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
125ml extra-virgin olive oil
1 large brown onion, finely sliced
1 red or green capsicum, seeds removed and finely sliced
2 medium eggplants, halved and finely sliced
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
4 medium zucchinis
6 tomatoes, cut into 5 mm slices
salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped lemon thyme
2 tablespoons grated parmesan
3 tablespoons dried breadcrumbs

Method

  1. Heat half the olive oil in a large, non-stick frying pan. Add the sliced onion and cook, stirring continuously, for 2 minutes. Add the capsicum and cook for 2 minutes, stirring again. Add the eggplant and garlic and cook over a low heat for about 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft .
  2. Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  3. Using a vegetable peeler, peel off the zucchini skin in vertical strips, 1 cm apart, so that strips of skin remain. Cut the zucchinis into 5 mm slices.
  4. Transfer the cooked vegetables to an ovenproof dish. Arrange the zucchini and tomato slices on top of the vegetables in alternate, overlapping rows. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle evenly with lemon thyme. Drizzle evenly with the remaining olive oil.
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with parmesan and breadcrumbs and bake for a further 10 minutes.
