Everything Delicious.

Provencal Vegetable Tian

This is an easy, healthy and pretty-looking vegetarian recipe.

The name of this recipe “tian” is inspired by the name of the traditional dish this was baked in in the south of France, a colourful clay dish, nothing like the one I used below unfortunately… But even without a colourful dish it still remains a colourful recipe. This tian is really easy to make but you will need a bit of time in front of you to cook it (1h-1h30 in the oven).


  • 3 zucchinis
  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 tomato
  • Black olives like kalamata (optional)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • mixed herbs (rosemary, thym, etc.)

How to prepare it:

  1. Preheat the oven at 450°F so it will be hot when you are ready.
  2. Cut all the veggies in regular slices.
  3. Put the onion slices at the bottom of the dish. On top of it, stack all other veggies vertically by alternating them (1 zucchini slice, 1 eggplant slice, 1 tomato slice… repeat…)
  4. Sprinkle with olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper.
  5. Cover with foil and place in the oven at 450F for 1h. It should be cooked by then but try with a knife. If it easily goes through the veggies, it’s cooked. Then remove the foil and cook an extra 15 minutes uncovered.

Serve hot, medium hot or even cold as a side to a nice meat on the BBQ or anything else you fancy!
