Harvest from your summer garden and make this delicious Zucchini, Tomato and Potato Casserole recipe! It’s a perfect summer side dish for veggie lovers!
If you have a garden full of zucchini (or summer squash or courgette or whatever you choose to call it…) you are probably looking for delicious ways to use it up. I came across some beautiful local organic yellow zucchini and knew I had to come up with something to really showcase the flavour and colour. Just look at that vibrant yellow!
This casserole is a perfect side dish for many summer meals. Caramelized onions line the bottom, with layers of sliced of zucchini and potato with a final layer that is carefully and beautifully arranged to include tomato. It is then topped with basil and almonds. This recipe was inspired by this recipe in Southern Living.
It didn’t take me long to prep but my knife skills are severely lacking. I wish I had a mandolin when I was doing this. I do have a food processor but I’ve never used the slicing blade and didn’t think this was the time to try.
It is important to try and get an even thickness with your slices though so that it all cooks evenly.
Zucchini, Tomato and Potato Casserole
1 Large Onions, sliced ¼” thick
2 medium Potato, sliced ¼” thick
2 medium Zucchini, sliced ¼” thick
2 medium Tomatoes, sliced ¼” thick
1 tsp Sea Salt

2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp dry Basil or 1 tbsp fresh Basil, minced
¼ Cup Sliced, Blanched Almonds
Preheat oven to 375°.
Layer onions into a 10-inch quiche dish or pie dish.
Toss together potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes with salt and pepper.
Arrange potatoes and zucchini into separate layers over the onions and drizzle with 1 Tbsp oil.
Arrange potatoes and zucchini and tomatoes in a single layer over this, alternating and overlapping slightly.
Sprinkle basil and almond over top then drizzle with remaining oil.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove foil and bake for a further 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.
Let stand about 10 minutes before serving.
