Briami Greek Vegetable Bake
Briami is a simple Greek-style Vegetable Bake. It is under the category of Vegetable Centred Greek Dishes called LATHERA coming from the word "lathi" meaning oil and of course we would only use extra virgin olive oil!
I am 100% sure you will absolutely love this incredible meal as it's a luxurious way of devouring your vegetables. Once again all it takes is chopping up the vegetables, throwing them into a baking dish, seasoning, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, and baking.
The vegetables come out soft, aromatic, and juicy. The idea is for the vegetables to overcook rather than be crunchy which makes it perfect to serve with a big loaf of bread to soak up those juices and extra virgin olive oil. Don't forget to add crumbled feta (dairy free option) and a side serving of olives.
Just as an added idea, I also love to add some capers for that little bit of extra saltiness.
