Recipe — Maple Zucchini Tian
4 portions
Metric Imperial

Ingredients

  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons maple vinegar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 yellow zucchini, sliced
  • 2 green zucchini, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 fresh roma tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/3 cup fresh parmesan, grated

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 °C (375 °F).
  2. In a large frying pan, fry the onions in 30 ml (2 tablespoons) olive oil, the vinegar and maple syrup. Leave to caramelize. Season with salt and pepper. Set the caramelized onions aside.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the zucchini, the rest of the olive oil and the herbs. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  4. In an ovenproof dish, approximately 23-cm (9-in) in diameter (or in 6 ramekins), place the vegetable slices over each other in a fan shape, alternating between zucchini, tomatoes, and caramelized onions.
  5. Bake in the centre of the oven for around 45 minutes (or 30 minutes if using ramekins).
  6. Sprinkle with parmesan and continue baking for a further 10 minutes (or 5 minutes if using ramekins).
  7. This is a delicious side to go with meat or fish.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
