Vegetable Torte

This is a wonderful recipe for a layered vegetable torte. This is the perfect time of year to make it with all of the fresh vegetables available at farmers markets, but it would be good anytime of year. You can grill the vegetables or roast them before putting this dish together so it is pretty flexible. Easily adapted to be vegan…just leave out the Parmesan topping.

Olive oil & a shrinking of salt is how I do it.

I served this as a side dish, but I think it would be good served as part of an appetizer course for dinner. I follow a great food blog called loveandumami. The  recipe for pickled onions is from there. I made them mostly … Continue reading Green Bean Salad with Pickled Red Onions
