Provençal tian, à la Chill

For 3-4 servings

 

3 zucchini

3 medium ripe tomatoes (not too ripe, therefore)

4 cloves of garlic

1 large teaspoon of Provence herbs

4 tbsp olive oil

Salt, Madagascar pepper

 

 

 

 

Recipe

Preheat the oven to 356 °F.

 

Wash the zucchini and tomatoes.

 

Using a mandolin, and paying close attention to your fingers, cut the zucchini into slices. Place them in a salad bowl. You can continue with the tomatoes if your mandolin is super sharp. Otherwise, a good knife will do the trick — Also, in slices, the tomatoes.

 

In the zucchini salad bowl, add the garlic cloves chopped with a garlic press (or a knife), the herbes de Provence, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Stir delicately using a large spoon to distribute all the ingredients over the beautiful zucchini slices.

 

In a pretty gratin dish, arrange the zucchini slices in rows, alternating with the tomato slices, with love, glory, and beauty. Collect the remaining olive oil and garlic from the bottom of the salad bowl and pour them over the vegetables.

 

Bake for 35 min.
