Huckleberry Potato and summer vegetable stovetop "pie"

Added by: on Nov 1st, 2010
lt’s the way the vegetables are framed in their cast-iron pan that makes the dish a pie, not a crust, which is completely absent. It falls into a ragout the minute it’s served, but the initial presentation is gorgeous and the dish is hearty enough that nothing else is needed on the plate. I like .. more >

Scrub, then slice the potatoes into 1/4-inch rounds. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a cast-iron skillet over low heat, add the potatoes, stir them about to coat them with the oil, then spread them evenly over the pan. Scatter over a third of the garlic, a third of the herbs, and season with salt and pepper.


Add a layer of the onion and zucchini over the potatoes, followed by more garlic and basil, salt and pepper. Add the pepper strips with the remaining garlic and basil, then the tomatoes. Dribble 3 tablespoons water down the sides of the pan and thread the rest of the oil over the top. Raise the heat just enough to get the water bubbling, then cover the pan and reduce the heat to very low.


3,. Cook until the vegetables are tender, about 25 minutes, then remove the lid, raise the heat, and reduce the excess liquid by boiling gently for several minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature with Marjoram Pesto, a basil puree, or homemade mayonnaise. You can even serve this cold as a salad, dressed with capers and a squeeze of lemon.

Cooks' note:
Assemble and wash your vegetables, get the potatoes cooking, then slice and layer everything else.

While a tian is usually the intended side dish for grilled meats, it makes a delectable vegetarian main course for those who don’t require huge amounts for dinner, or who are happy to get them at the periphery instead of the center. The key to goodness starts with getting your hands on vegetables from your farmers' market, then slicing them thinly and baking them very slowly. This can be ..
