[Recipe] : Aubergine & Courgette Tian

Provence’s traditional vegetable tian, which takes its name from its shallow terracotta baking dish, is a local culinary speciality packed with delicious Provencal flavours.


For 6 people

  • 5 courgettes
  • 3 aubergines
  • 2 tomatoes (optional)
  • 4 white onions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt & pepper



Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 1 hour

  • Wash the courgettes and aubergines, remove the ends, then cut into slices. Peel the onions and cut into thin slices. Peel and slice the garlic.
  • Arrange the vegetable slices in a tian (terracotta baking dish) using alternating colours and packing together snugly. Insert the sliced garlic at regular intervals. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle on the thyme and bay leaves (crush them slightly beforehand) and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Bake for 1 hour at 160° (th. 5). Check the tian remains moist (add a little warm water if necessary).

Bon appétit!
