Briam (Greek Baked Zucchini and Potatoes)

“Briam is a traditional Greek roasted vegetable dish with potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes, and red onions with lots of olive oil. It is a typical example of Greek cuisine where a few simple ingredients are turned into an utterly delicious dish with little effort. It can be served as a main course. With olive oil as the only source of fat it is a quintessential example of the Mediterranean diet, and it is vegan to boot. If preferred, serve with a hearty chunk of feta on the side.”

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 large zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 4 small red onions, thinly sliced
  • 6 ripe tomatoes, pureed
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
