Hearty vegetables, like tasty red tomatoes and fresh eggplant and zucchini, create rich flavors in this showstopper dish.


  • 1 jar (12 oz./340 g) roasted red peppers, drained
  • ½  small yellow onion
  • 4   garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 can (12 oz./425 g) crushed tomatoes
  • 3 tsp (15 mL) Herbs de Provence Seasoning Mix, divided
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) salt
  • 1   zucchini, trimmed
  • 1   Asian eggplant, trimmed
  • 2   plum tomatoes, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) balsamic vinegar


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C).
  2. Chop the peppers, onion, and garlic in the Manual Food Processor. Combine the pepper mixture, crushed tomatoes, 2 tsp (10 mL) of the seasoning mix, and salt in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, covered, for 6 minutes, stirring halfway through.

  3. Meanwhile, slice the zucchini, eggplant, and plum tomatoes on the No. 4 thickness of the Rapid-Prep Mandoline.

  4. Transfer the tomato mixture to the 2-qt. (2-L) Enameled Cast Iron Baker. Work from the outer edge of the baker to the inside as you alternate and layer the vegetables in a circular pattern.

  5. Whisk the oil, vinegar, and remaining seasoning mix in a small bowl and brush the mixture onto the layered vegetables.
  6. Bake until the vegetables soften, 22–25 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
