Savory Vegetable Gratin

I initially crafted this recipe back in Summer 2017 when I was really getting into meal prepping for the first time. I was on a kick to find ways to increase my dietary fiber intake while keeping kcals lower.

This is gold! So, so, so yummy!

TIPS: Steps 2-4 can be done in advance and refrigerated overnight (covered in plastic wrap) then pick up at Step 5 to finalize the next day. To make this recipe OvoVege or Vegan, leave out the cheese (and then it’s a Savory Vegetable Casserole, not Gratin)

NOTES: Any leftovers refrigerate and reheat fairly well, but beware of the tomatoes wilting with cooling and reheating.
