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!

    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:)
