Timbal De Vegetables

Hola!

With this dish, you can’t say that eating vegetables is boring or that vegetables are plain. I love this simple Timbal de Vegetables.(Timbal is Spanish for a drum, because this dish is in the shape of a drum.) Like a lot of my dishes, this one is so quick and easy to make. My top ingredients for this timbal are zucchini, eggplant and onion. You can easily change one or add another vegetable, such as a winter squash since its more seasonal and readily available.

I like to poach an egg on top of the timbal. The runny yolk mixed with the vegetables creates a unique flavor. Yuummy! Don’t forget a piece of bread, because you will need it.


While the vegetables are cooking, make the poached egg. An easy way to do this is to place the egg in plastic wrap and seal it with an elastic. Cook the egg for 3-4 minutes in boiling water. Remove from the heat and cut the wrap.

Place the egg on top of the vegetables.

Serve warm and…

Bon profit!I

    Looks yummy! I’d like to try this for a meatless Monday option. I don’t see directions on how to “plate” the timbale. Do you put it into a greased ramekin? How do you produce the drum shape?
