How to Make Baked Vegetable Casserole (Tourlou-Tourlou)

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat a 11-x-15-inch baking pan with nonstick olive oil cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Place the potatoes, beans, and carrots in a 2 1/2-quart pot with enough water to cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium, cover, and boil for about 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are partially cooked. Drain.
  3. Arrange the potatoes in a layer in the bottom of the baking pan. Follow with a layer of string beans, carrots, eggplant, zucchini, onion, bell pepper, celery, and tomatoes. Sprinkle with oregano, mint, parsley, and garlic, then pour the tomato sauce on top. Add enough hot water to just cover the vegetables, then sprinkle with sugar and pepper.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover, reduce the heat to 350°F, and continue to bake another 45 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Serve hot.
