Provencal Summer Vegetable Bake

Barb Tranello


I would like to thank one of my “Free Samplers” customers, Donna Holzer for this wonderful recipe she found in Family Circle. Donna, “Thank you”! It is absolutely perfect for my Souper Spices Herbes De Provence Blend! You really don’t need anything else with this except for maybe a loaf of bread. I made this as a side dish for our family reunion last summer because I needed to feed a crowd and this did the trick. I love this so much I put it in my news letter so no one will miss it at!

How to Make Provencal Summer Vegetable Bake


  1. Heat oven to 400°. Peel and halve onions; cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add onions and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Stir in beans, 1/2 teaspoon of the Herbes de Provence and 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper. Pour mixture into bottom of a 9 x 13 oven-safe casserole dish.
  2. Meanwhile, cut eggplant, squash, potatoes and tomatoes into 1/4-inch thick slices. (To speed things up, use a food processor fitted with a slicing blade or a mandolin.) Toss vegetables with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons Souper Spices Herbes de Provence and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  3. Arrange vegetables on top of onion-bean mixture in 1 layer; pack tightly. Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. Remove foil and crumble goat cheese on top. Bake 15 more minutes. Cool slightly and slice into 4 servings.
    Forget what you learned about salting eggplant. The theory is that it eliminates bitterness. But most varieties nowadays don’t have that undesirable trait, so salting only serves to increase a dish’s sodium level. Skip it.
