I felt like trying the same thing with the zucchini to make a little like a tian.

What to put in the zucchini slices? I thought to myself. Because yes, I am talking to myself:p

I thought of a whole bunch of stuff to insert: garlic slices, cheese slices, thin slices of chorizo etc. I’ve been thinking of a whole bunch of things to insert: garlic slices, cheese slices, thin slices of chorizo etc. Finally I decided to simply put thin slices of tomatoes for a flat vegetarian. But I will try the other versions 😉 I found this dish perfect for one evening.

For 4 persons you need

  • 2 zucchini long
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of herbes de Provence
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • A few turns of the pepper mill
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons of grated cheese (Parmesan, Gruyère etc.).

Wash the zucchini and tomatoes. Pour the olive oil into an ovenproof dish.

Preheat the furnace to 180°C.

Cut the zucchini into two equal halves. Slice each zucchini half into strips, but not completely, 34 inches high. To help you, I advise you to use Chinese chopsticks. I give you the picture of the hasselback potatoes, you have to do exactly the same:
