Briami – a delicious roasted vegetable recipe
If you have never had Briami, you are in for a delicious treat. This is one of my absolute favourite way to eat vegetables.
Briami is a traditional Greek roasted vegetable bake using olive oil. It’s a great example of how simple, fresh, wholesome ingredients can taste so good.
The olive oil really does make this dish, so choose a good quality one with a beautiful flavour. I always use Zig Zag Farm olive oil in my cooking and products.
Briami is a great way to get your daily vegetables quota up and add a variety of different nutrients to your diet.
Feel free to use whatever vegetables you like, but Mediterranean vegetables work best for this. The potatoes go crisp and fluffy and soak up the beautiful flavours, so try to include them for the absolute yummiest option!
Leftovers can be used hot or cold in salads, on pizza, topped with some eggs for breakfast, the ideas are endless.
It makes a great vegan or vegetarian dish or a yummy side dish with a big roast lamb or chicken. Add a fresh green salad and you have a healthy family dinner.
