3 zucchini, cut into ¼-inch slices

1½ red onions, cut in half lengthwise and sliced

2 teaspoons fresh garlic, minced

1 teaspoon olive oil

¾ teaspoon salt, divided

Fresh ground pepper, to taste

3 red bell peppers, halved, cored and seeded

3 yellow bell peppers, halved, cored and seeded

1 eggplant (about 2 pounds) unpeeled, cut into ¼ slices

2 tablespoons olive oil

¼ cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese (leave out cheese for Passover, if desired)


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.

2. In a large microwave bowl, add zucchini, onions and garlic. Drizzle 1 teaspoon olive oil over the top. Microwave for about 4-5 minutes until the vegetables are soft. Season with a little salt and pepper.

3. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Add peppers and eggplant to the pan. Drizzle 2 tablespoons olive oil over vegetables. Toss well to coat. Spread out vegetables over the entire pan.

4. Place in oven and roast for 30-40 minutes until soft but not browned. Remove from oven.

5. Place each vegetable in a single overlapping layer. Begin with half the eggplant and next, add all the red peppers. Sprinkle with half the cheese and a little salt and pepper. Add all the zucchini and onions. Next, the yellows peppers. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and a little salt and pepper. Finally add the remaining eggplant.

6. Cover the top of the vegetables with a 9-inch round piece of parchment paper or waxed paper. Place another cake bottom, cake pan or plate on top and weight it down with a few heavy cans or jars (over time the weight holds this torte together).

7. Place on a larger plate or baking sheet (it will leak) and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

8. Before serving, place on a platter or cake plate and serve at room temperature or place in the microwave to warm.
