Summer Vegetable Tian
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.Advertisement
Heat oil and garlic in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until the garlic begins to sizzle, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and set aside.
Slice tomatoes, onions, squash and zucchini into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Standing them up on their sides, alternate the tomato, onion, squash and zucchini slices in a circular pattern around the edge of a 9-inch deep-dish glass pie pan or similar-size round casserole dish. Make a second alternating circle in the center. Pack the vegetables tightly: they will shrink while baking.
Discard the garlic, if desired, and drizzle the vegetables with the oil. Sprinkle with salt. Bake until the vegetables are tender and starting to brown, about 1 hour. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
