The best season for cooking interesting and simple dishes is summer in my opinion. Of course, we can buy any vegetables in winter as well, but in summer I can feel their real freshness. I want to have vegetables as often as possible and cook something new with them. All housekeepers know all ways of vegetable cooking – boiling, frying, baking and stewing. The combinations of them are endless and every time the taste doesn’t leave me indifferent at least. Opportunities to experiments are endless.Sometimes I am too lazy to experiment myself and rely on the internet. Last time when I was searching it I was enriched by a new recipe of this blogger. The name attracted me immediately – Summer vegetable tian. Can you imagine my happiness and joy? I just had to learn what tian is.

It turned to be a dish of sliced vegetables that are fried in olive oil and baked. Isn’t it interesting? Yes, it is! I cooked this dish at once and I loved it for plenty of various vegetables, which I like so much. Garlic and cheese add and reveal the taste of tian. I had it as a side dish to chicken and I can’t tell you for sure, whether main course is necessary here, because vegetables cooked by this recipe taste just perfect to be eaten without anything else. Women who keep their figure will appreciate this dish and men who always need meat will have these vegetables as a side dish to their favorite meat.If you are as fan of vegetable dishes as I am, welcome to my club and I recommend you cooking the dish by this recipe.
