Domino-stacked Veggie Casserole
Modified for the farm from Barefoot in Paris
- 2 T extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 large yellow onions- sliced thin. You can add 1 fennel bulb sliced into slivers and sauted with the 2 onions. Save the 1/3 cup fennel leaves to sprinkle on top after it comes out of the oven.
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 4 large zucchinis, sliced into thin rounds
- 6-7 small yukon or yellow potatoes, sliced into thin rounds
- 4-5 tomatoes, sliced into thin rounds
- 1 T extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
- sea salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup grated gouda or Pecorino Romano cheese
Put it together:
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
- Add the onions and salt and cook for about 10 minutes until soft and just beginning to caramelize. They’ll start to smell sweet.
- Add garlic and thyme and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Spread the onion mixture in the bottom of a nine or ten inch wide baking dish.
- Stand the vegetable slices on end like dominoes in this order: zucchini slice, tomato slice, potato slice until the tray is full on one side. Repeat for the second row of veggie dominios.
- Drizzle with olive oil and season with thyme, salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese.
- Wrap foil tightly around the dish.
- Bake for 30 minutes, remove foil and bake for an additional 25 minutes until it’s golden brown and heated through.
