Briam is a Greek Ratatouille. It is served in the summer as a main course when all the vegetables are available fresh from the garden.
Vegetables are baked in a savory tomato sauce and served either as the main meal or as a tasty side dish. This is a traditional recipe. When I make this dish I sometimes omit the eggplant as I'm not a fan. If not fasting and would like extra flavor add some crumbled feta cheese to the dish when serving.
Kali Orexi! Have a good appetite!

How to Make "Briam" - Oven Roasted Vegetable Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine all washed and cut vegetables in a large shallow ovenproof casserole or baking dish. Add dry white wine, olive oil, herbs, salt & pepper. If you like you can add sausage to this recipe, just like I did.
  2. Bake the briam, stirring occasionaly, in a moderate 315^F (190^ C) oven for about 1 1/2 hours. Or until vegetables are tender. Add a little boiling water if necessary to prevent sticking. Serve hot or at room temperature. Enjoy!
  3. Tip:
    Feta cheese is a great addition crumbled on top or a slice on the side of the plate. Also don't forget some crusty bread to dip in the delicious savory sauce:)
