A light summer dish made of vegetables. Briam can be found throughout Greece as well as in the surrounding countries. The name lets me assume that the dish originates in the Ottoman empire. The dish fits the season perfectly due to its main ingredients such as tomato, eggplant and courgette.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Baking time: 1 hour

difficulty: easy


  • 1 large tomatoes
  • 2 long and slim eggplants
  • 2 potatoes
  • 4 courgettes
  • 1 red onion
  • can of diced tomato
  • Feta cheese
  • olive oil
  • some salt and pepper


Peel the potato, then cut into wedges. Cut the eggplants, courgettes an tomato into cubes of a similar size.

Cur the red onion into rings.

Put all the vegetables together into a roasting pan. Pour the diced tomato and one glass of water over it. Season with salt and pepper.Drizzle some olive oil over it.

Put into the oven at 180 degrees centigrade for 1 hour.

This dish is served warm or cold with a slice of feta cheese.

  1. A wonderful summer casserole! So healthy and mouthwatering.



  2. A delightful summer dish that benefits greatly from garden fresh veggies. Just not the same in the winter.

  3. Briam is one of my favorite dishes in the world! Although, we always called it tourlou tourlou (I still don’t know if there is technically a difference). Looks delicious.

  4. Looks so perfect!! I can eat this everyday!

  5. This is the very first dish I tried on a small island in Greece. I walked up the hill into the hora and stopped at a nice place at the top.
