Briam (mixed roasted vegetables)

from RereRini on 06/09/2019 09:22 AM

1 kg ripe tomatoes, peeled and sliced
1/2 kg potatoes, sliced
1/2 kg aubergines, sliced
1/2 kg courgette, sliced
3/4 cup olive oil
1 red onion, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsps chopped parsley
salt and freshly ground pepper

We start by preparing our vegetables.  We peel and cut the potatoes in slices. We wash thoroughly the courgettes and the aubergines and slice into 1cm slices. Alternatively we can cut the vegetables in chunks. We peel the tomatoes and we cut into thin slices. (You can also use green bell peppers).  We take a large baking pan, approx. 30*35cm, so that the vegetables are not layered too deep.  We layer the bottom of the pan with sliced tomatoes and season. We place on top the sliced vegetables and season well. We sprinkle with the onion and garlic and top with the rest of the tomatoes. We season well, we garnish with chopped parsley and drizzle with olive oil.  We cover the briam with aluminum foil and we bake in preheated oven at 200C (both top and bottom heating elements on) for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.  We uncover the briam halfway through cooking time, we toss the vegetables and continue baking until nicely coloured.  We serve this traditional briam dish with salty feta cheese and lots of bread.
