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.
I thought this was good but I prefer a regular Ratatouille over this recipe. a nice change and a good way to use up my garden veggies but not a favorite for me.
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.
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!
I made this for a crowd, and everyone LOVED it! There was not one speck of leftovers, and everyone wanted the recipe. It was so easy to make and tasted so great. Thanks for this recipe, it will remain a staple in my kitchen!
Simple, healthy and delicious! I usually don't go for mint, but it really works here. The capers are also key.
I really liked this but bf didn't--not a surprise, since he doesn't really like tangy sauces. I also subbed a few different veggies in here but it didn't really change the overall flavor. Very easy, if a number of steps. If you like capers and vinegar you will really like this. thanks for the recipe!
Loved this dish. Great flavor change and quick way to use up veggies. I added red potatoes.
