Here is a great classic of the Provençal cuisine: Vegetable Tian à la Provençale! It is a very simple dish to realize and will make a perfect side dish to meat or fish or as a main course accompanied by a salad for a light meal.

What is Vegetable Tian?

Tian is a typical dish of the Provencal cuisine. It simply consists of sliced vegetables covered with Provencal herbs and olive oil. The vegetables are nicely arranged in circles or rows by playing with the colours of the vegetables.

The vegetables are then cooked in the oven for at least an hour, which gives them a melt-in-the-mouth taste and a very aromatic flavour. For more flavour, mozzarella or feta cheese can be added. You can also sprinkle the tian with breadcrumbs.

Preparation of the Vegetable Tian à la Provençale

For this Vegetable Tian à la Provençale, I used two large zucchini, one eggplant, two beautiful tomatoes and three medium potatoes. These portions make a Tian for about 4 people.

Preparation of the vegetables

Cut the courgettes into 0.5 cm slices. For the eggplant, I first cut the eggplant in half lengthwise and then cut slices of the same thickness as the zucchini. Cut the tomatoes into slices as well.

Depending on the type of potatoes you use, you can choose to peel them or not. Personally, I used small potatoes so I kept the skin. So peel your potatoes if necessary, then cut them into thin slices.

Preparation of the Tian à la provençale

Preheat the oven to 200° C. In a glass or terracotta dish, start by adding a drizzle of olive oil to the bottom of the dish. Then arrange a row of courgette, a row of potato, a row of courgette, a row of eggplant, a row of courgette and finally a row of tomato. Continue in this way until the dish is filled.

Cut three cloves of garlic into thin strips and sprinkle the garlic over the tian, spreading it evenly over all the vegetables. Sprinkle generously with herbes de Provence. Season with salt and pepper. If you like spicy dishes, you can add a little sweet pepper. Finally, pour a generous dash of olive oil over the vegetables.

Cook the Vegetable Tian one hour. Serve hot as a side dish to meat or fish or as a main course with a green salad.
