Ingredients

4
long narrow plum tomatoes
4 small
firm zucchini about 6 inches long
4 clove
garlic peeled
2 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1/4 tsp
kosher salt
1/4 tsp
freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp
herbs de provence (mix of basil, fennel, lavender, marjoram, summer savory and thyme)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400-degrees.

Wash tomatoes and cut each of them lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices leaving slices attached at the stem end so they can be opened like a fan. Each zucchini should have 4 slits.
2
Arrange zucchini side by side in lightly oiled roasting pan with enough space between to fan them out. Slide a slice of tomato into each each slit and press down firmly on zucchini to create a fan with alternating segments of zucchini and tomato.
3
Cut each garlic clove lengthwise into 8 thin slices; slide slices into fans alongside tomato slices. Brush entire surface of fans with oil, and sprinkle salt, pepper and herbes de Provence on top.
4
Bake 30 minutes, or until vegetables are soft and fans are nicely browned on top. Using large spatula, transfer fans to 4 plates. Serve immediately.
