“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.”
- 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
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Spread potatoes, zucchini, and red onions in a 9×13-inch baking dish, or preferably a larger one. Use 2 baking dishes if necessary. Cover with pureed tomatoes, olive oil, parsley. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Toss all ingredients together so that the vegetables are evenly coated.
- Bake in the preheated oven, stirring after 1 hour, until vegetables are tender and moisture has evaporated, about 90 minutes. Cool slightly before serving, or serve at room temperature.
