Squash and Potato Torte

I think this is my favorite new recipe of 2009 – it’s that good. The torte was very thin, but bursting with flavor. The original recipe is from Smitten Kitchen, a wonderful site with many great recipes and food photos. I only made a few changes, substituting whole wheat flour for white, and using dried thyme instead of fresh. Although the instructions look long, this was very easy to make. I highly recommend that you try this one soon!

3 Yukon gold potatoes, thinly sliced, divided
1 yellow summer squash, thinly sliced
3 t olive oil, divided
1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 T whole wheat flour
1/2 bunch scallions, sliced
1 t dried thyme
3/4 t salt
1/2 t black pepper

Mix cheese, flour, scallions, thyme, salt, and pepper.

Lightly coat a cake pan or pie plate with cooking spray. Add the following layers in order:
1/3 of potatoes
1/2 of summer squash
1 t oil
1/3 of cheese mixture
1/3 of potatoes
1/2 of summer squash
1 t oil
1/3 of cheese mixture
1/3 of potatoes
1 t oil
1/3 of cheese mixture

Cover the dish with foil, and bake for 40 minutes at 375F. Remove foil, and bake for an additional 20 minutes at 375F.

  1. Aah, summer squash! When you told me about this, I was picturing *winter* squash….hence my confused look. It all makes sense now and looks really good!
