Vegetable tomato gratin

Ok, so I can’t be sure that this qualifies as a gratin. Perhaps you have another suggestion? But it is a casserole-y vegetable bake-y thing that goes a little bit crunchy? So that’s probably a gratin, right? It’s so simple and easy and delicious. I served this with a green/avocado/olive/dill salad. Perfection.

Ingredients

1 zucchini

1 potato

1 sweet potato

5-6 squash

handful of baby spinach leaves

Use the appropriate blade on the food processor to finely slice all vegetables.

Create a tomato sauce – and you can do as I did and simplify it. I just used mushrooms, capsicum, onion and grated carrot with garlic and passata. Simple, delicious. With a bit of balsamic and seasoning thrown in.

Use some dried or fresh basil. Add some tomato sauce to the base of a casserole dish and layer the sliced vegetables around the base.
