1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice vegetables with a mandoline as close in size as possible and toss with olive oil and a lite sprinkling of sea salt.
Combine parmesan, bread crumbs, garlic and thyme in a small bowl.
2Arrange a layer of overlapping slices of 1/3 of the potatoes on the bottom of gratin dish. Sprinkle 2-3 tbs of the breadcrumb mixture over the top. Add a row of tomatoes, eggplant, pepper, zucchini until you the pan is filled adding a layer of breadcrumbs on top of each layer. (I garnish the top layer with overlapping slices of zucchini and tomatoes).
Sprinkle the top with any of the remaining breadcrumb/cheese mixture and a light sprinkling of salt.
3Bake for 45 minutes until the vegetables are completely tender when pierced with a knife. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Server with a light drizzle of Olive Oil.
This stew is based on the savory rice porridge congee, which has roots in Chinese, Thai, and Korean cuisines. Though the dish uses some classic Asian ingredients—such as fish sauce, ginger, and bok choy—the flavors are not aggressively Asian.
Our beautiful Easter centerpiece bread offers a healthier take on the classic egg- and butter-enriched bread. It’s made completely with white whole-wheat flour and less added sugar (in this case, honey) than many traditional recipes.
