Directions

  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.

Never having tasted briam, I found this to be the Greek answer to ratatouille with the concept of allowing fresh veggies to shine on their own in this rustic dish. The uncooked tomato sauce was especially good with the briny capers and fresh herbs, but I did cut back a bit on the olive oil as well as the sugar. Once baked, I served this as a side dish to grilled chicken for some, but enjoyed my portion vegetarian-style along with some feta and crusty bread. Thanks, Aggeliki, for a dish I will make often this summer.

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 bread! Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

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 worked just fine. Thanks for a good recipe.
