Briam is one of the most famous dishes of Greek cuisine. Depending on the region of Greece, this vegetable casserole consisting of zucchini, potatoes and eggplant has many variants. Even on our site there are two recipes for its preparation. Today we will add another one that definitely surprised us. We ate briam prepared this way in Paleochora in one of our favorite family traditional taverns this year. What makes this briam different from other recipes is the fact that there are no eggplants in the composition. This slight difference affects the taste. In this case the saying that less is more works ;-) So far this recipe has become our favorite.
Compared to other versions, this is probably the simplest version to prepare, which does not mean, however, that it is less time consuming. Unfortunately, this dish is not light because briam must spend enough time in the oven. We highly recommend trying this recipe.
1. Cut zucchini and peeled potatoes into thin slices. We rub the tomatoes on a grater with thick eyes, rejecting the skin.
2. Transfer zucchini and potatoes into a deep and large ovenproof dish or deep pan. Salt with sea salt, sprinkle with oregano and pour olive oil generously. Mix everything thoroughly, add crumbled feta cheese and mix again. Finally, pour the evenly grated tomatoes over the vegetables and finally some more oil.
3. Briam bake uncovered at 150 degrees for about 2 hours. If you notice that the vegetables are starting to roast too much during baking, you can lower the temperature slightly.
Spanakorizo is a very classic vegetarian dish of Greek cuisine. Rice combined with spinach and lemon juice is a simple and healthy dish, which is worth preparing when fresh spinach is available. It can be served as an appetizer or an independent dish. Spanakorizo is also worth sprinkling with crumbled feta cheese.
The popular vegetable in Crete is okra, which can often be found in local greengrocers. This very healthy and low-calorie vegetable is unfortunately virtually unheard of in Poland. If you would like to try it, it's worth doing it while in Crete. Just look for one of the local taverns, which serves dishes prepared on the basis of okra. Of course, you can also prepare it yourself, for example based on the following recipe.
Depending on the region, its preparation and components differ slightly. That is why today we provide a recipe for a slightly more complex version of this delicious vegetable casserole. You will need a little more ingredients to make it, which will be layered in different layers
