Vegetable Bake ~ Tian Provencal
The amount of fresh vegetables are plentiful and the peasants would have made their vegetable dishes using what was available in season.
This dish would have been made at home and taken to the bakers and when the baker had finished making the bread these simple dishes would have been put in the bread ovens to cook.
This was of course in the days before people had ovens in their own homes.
It's a lovely refreshing and tasty dish to have on it's own with some crusty French bread or is delicious served with meat, poultry or fish!
