Courgette and Potato Bake (Grandma Style)

Humble and quite traditional southern Italian dish starring two simple yet delicious ingredients: potatoes and courgettes. These gorgeous ingredients are sliced and arranged in layers, each to be flavoured with fresh herbs (typically parsley) and spices.

  • 4 Potatoes Large
  • 3 Courgettes Medium
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Salad Tomato or 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 30 g Fresh Parsley
  • 2 tbsp Dried Sage Optional
  • 20 g Vegan Parmesan Cheese Gondino
  • 2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Preheat the oven at 180° C.
  • Now: let's start chopping up! In order to assemble this easy dish quickly and smoothly, I recommend to prep all the veggies and set them aside.
  • 1st layer: potato slices on a bed of olive oil. Sprinkle some onion cubes and season with salt, pepper and sage.
  • 2nd layer: arrange courgette slices over the potatoes and season with salt, pepper, garlic, nutritional yeast, Gondino cheese, fresh parsley and a touch of olive oil.
  • Repeat layers 1 and 2, then cover with a final layer of potatoes. Season with salt, pepper, sage, tomatoes, nutritional yeast, vegan parmesan and a drizzle of olive oil.
  • Pour 1/2 an inch of salted water into the corners of the tray, making sure it goes on the bottom of it without ruining the layers.
  • Bake for 30 to 45 minutes until potatoes are cooked thoroughly. Piercing them with a wooden skewer might help.


- Make sure you season every layer - Serve hot, warm or cold. It seriously is amazing anyhow!
