Potato and Eggplant Tian


"Wonderful, rich vegetarian crockpot dish starring potato, eggplant and tomatoes. We serve it over garlic couscous, but it would be just as good over rice, quinoa or alone. It's a little extra work with the precooking but the flavors come together so beautifully it's worth it."
