A tian is a native dish to Provence and is basically a colorful, yummy, simple vegetable casserole. You might recognize Ratatouille as a tian. I wanted to make something the “looked” and tasted Christmas-ey, so I came up with this idea. It was easy and very yummy.
1 pound of fresh beets
1 pound yukon gold potatoes
1 pound apples (I like honey crisp apples the best)
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Spray olive oil
- Wrap beets in foil and bake for an hour or until the beets are softened. Cool the beets.
- Slice the potatoes, apples and beets to a 1/4 inch thickness.
- Stack the potato, apple and beet slices into individual stacks. Fan out the stacks in a cast iron skillet to make a pretty pattern. Spray the vegetables with a light coat of olive oil. Sprinkle with spices.
- Cover with foil and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 25 more minutes.
