  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place three of the tomatoes, the 1/2 cup olive oil, red wine vinegar, sugar, parsley, mint, basil, oregano, capers, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor and process to create a fresh tomato sauce. Season with salt and black pepper; set aside. Chop the remaining tomato; set aside.
  2. Heat the 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the onions until slightly golden, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir together the onions, potatoes, eggplant, zucchini, bell peppers, okra, the reserved chopped tomato, and the fresh tomato sauce, and place the mixture in a large baking pan. If needed, stir in a little water so that the vegetables are just covered with sauce.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until all vegetables are tender, about 1 hour.

Delicious! If you are using 1/2 cup olive oil, you don't need to add water, just cover the pan with aluminum foil. It should be done in about 1 hour or less at 400F. Serve with freshly baked bre...

Very pleased to see a recipe for Briam. This one is very good but a little too much oil for us (realize that you use a lot more Olive oil than we normally do). Anyway, cutting it back by a half ...

I made this for a crowd, and everyone LOVED it! There was not one speck of leftovers, and everyone wanted the recipe. It was so easy to make and tasted so great. Thanks for this recipe, it wi...

Simple, healthy and delicious! I usually don't go for mint, but it really works here. The capers are also key.

I really liked this but bf didn't--not a surprise, since he doesn't really like tangy sauces. I also subbed a few different veggies in here but it didn't really change the overall flavor. Very ...

Loved this dish. Great flavor change and quick way to use up veggies. I added red potatoes.

Excellent! Great way to use up zucchini and eggplant at the end of the growing season. I will make this again and again.

I was looking for a Greek sauce to go over baked meatballs that had feta and dill in them, so I adapted this and it was delicious! I only had fresh mint handy (snipped it off the new plant on my...
