summer vegetable tian.

tian /tyan/: (n) A dish of finely chopped vegetables cooked in olive oil and then baked au gratin.

I. Love. Summer. Veggies. So when I came across this recipe from Budget Bytes (on Pinterest, duh), I knew I had to make it.

With zucchini, squash, potato, onion and tomato, this dish is bursting with flavor. Oh, and did I mentioned the cheese? Gooey, delicious, melty flavor.

It also only took about 30 minutes to make. I had a mandolin (thinly sliced veggies in no time!),  used shredded gruyere (instead of shredded italian cheese) and added in red bell pepper (there was one getting soft in my fridge).

Awaiting your feedback with bated breath,
