This simple but elegant dish is perfect for serving when company comes over and makes an especially nice side for fish. It’s always beautiful, and the vegetables are completely interchangeable, so use what you have.


Vegetable Tian

  • 1 eggplant, sliced

  • 1 red onion, sliced

  • 1 zucchini, sliced

  • 2 tomatoes, sliced

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil (or animal fat [if not serving with fish])

  • 1 teaspoon Tuscanini Sea Salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper, such as Gefen

  • handful of fresh thyme, stripped off stems

  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed or chopped



Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.


Place the vegetables in a big bowl and drizzle with the fat. Add the sea salt, pepper, thyme, and garlic. Using a large spoon, gently toss to coat.


In a round, well-greased baking dish, place the vegetable slices in a repeating pattern of concentric circles. You can also use a rectangular dish and make a pattern of alternating rows. Add a bit more fat on top of the vegetables and cover with foil.


Cook for 20 minutes, remove the foil, and baste the vegetables with the juices in the bottom of the pan. Cook for an additional 20 minutes, basting once again halfway through. Remove from the oven and serve.
