Preparation steps


Preheat oven to 200°C (approximately 400°F). Peel potatoes. Rinse eggplant and zucchini. Trim ends. Rinse tomatoes and remove cores. Peel onions and garlic. Cut all vegetables into thin slices. Cut goat cheese into slices. Grease a large baking dish with oil and place vegetables in rows, alternating as you go. Occasionally add goat cheese slice or bay leaf. Crumble remaining cheese on top and season with salt and pepper.


Chop half of thyme and savory finely and sprinkle on top. Place remaining whole thyme on top. Mix oil with broth and pour over casserole. Bake for 1 hour or until soft. If vegetables are browning too much, cover with aluminum foil.


Serve with white bread if desired.
