IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

Vegetables are so much a part of our life that we always have a dish, if not two nightly.

This is a very simple and yet full of flavor, favorite French dish. This is how I present it or the vegetables that I prefer. However,  you can add thinly sliced potatoes, eggplant as well.

Great side dish to all meats, fish and poultry.

    I love tians, especially in the Summer. This tian sounds like a wonderful idea as I had not thought of using Winter vegetables such as squash!
