Zucchini and Tomato Tian is my recipe of the day with Farmer’s Market Week. Several  bloggers will be posting jointly  over the course of the week. I will be posting each day with a different summer recipe beginning  with the tian.

The tian really is a lovely way to serve up what is most abundant right now in the garden,  including onions, zucchini and lots of vine ripe tomatoes.

Simple Prep

The preparation really is very simple. And while probably not best for the hottest days, there are a few slipping  in here and there where the weather is cooler and we can crack the windows  open. That makes quite the opportune  time to make a vegetable casserole  or bake up a fruit pie.

The  topping  is a simple toss of fresh soft bread crumbs with herbs and a little cheese. I think you will really enjoy this and be thinking of  it often in  the months we have before we put our gardens to bed.

Make sure to join me each day as I share more recipes and be sure to browse the link-up as there are going to be lots of lush recipes!
