I will always remember my close friend’s reaction to this dish: “Wow, I knew this was right up my alley, but to have my picky ‘meat-n-potatoes’ husband lick his plate clean?!” Be prepared for a dish that is both brilliant and delicious.

Main ingredients

Start Cooking

For the Torte

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Brush red and yellow peppers and eggplant slices with olive oil. Season with kosher salt and pepper to taste and roast on a baking sheet for 30–40 minutes, until soft but not browned.

  3. Meanwhile, sauté zucchini, onions, and garlic in olive oil in a large frying pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  4. In a 8-(20-cm) or 9-inch (23-cm) round springform pan or a disposable round pan, place each vegetable in a single overlapping layer, sprinkling cheese, salt, and pepper between each layer. Begin with half of the eggplant, then half of the zucchini-onion-garlic mixture. Continue with the red peppers and yellow peppers, then the rest of the zucchini-onion-garlic mixture, ending with the eggplant.

  5. Cover the vegetables with a 6-inch (15-cm) round piece of parchment paper. Then place a 6-inch (15-cm) disc (another cake pan or the false bottom of tart pan) on top. Weigh it down with jars or cans.

  6. Place pan onto a cookie sheet (it will leak) and chill completely the day before you need it.

  7. Drain the liquid. Serve on a platter at room temperature.

    It would be nice to view how it is made

    How does the cheese that is between the layers melt?

    That is a great question. It seems that according to the recipe the cheese shouldn't be melted. However, if you'd like to melt the cheese I would stick it in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese is melted.

    Is this supposed to be baked? If so for how long and at what temperature?

    It doesn't seem to need baking. I asked Rivky to confirm.
