Recipe by  

Discover this classic dish from the Provence region of France. Excellent choice as an accompaniment for a thick slice of ham. This recipe is very simple to follow and economical too. It takes just a few minutes to prepare and looks after itself in the oven.

Fromage frais is a creamy soft cheese, made with whole or skimmed milk and cream. It is like cream cheese, but with less fat (fewer calories and less cholesterol). If you cannot find fromage frais, you can use low fat cream cheese. Pure fromage frais has very little fat.

A tian is an earthenware vessel of Provence used both for cooking and serving. It is also the name of the dish prepared in it and baked in an oven.

Rating 4 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again March 28 2018
Really easy to make and tasty too. My kids aren't always receptive to vegetables (and that's putting it mildly) but they wolfed this down and suggested we could have it again some time.
