Really Tasty Sunday Recipe – Greek-Style Fresh Veggie Casserole (Briami)

Bon Appetit recipe for Greek style veggie casserole

One of my Sunday rituals is trying to get something together to take to work during the week. Usually I make a big “one-pot” batch of something healthy and easy so that I don’t have to worry about fixing lunch during the work week. This veggie casserole thing from Bon Appetit was really awesome. It did take a little over an hour start to finish, but overall it was incredibly easy and tasty.

Briami is a traditional Greek dish that is pretty similar to ratatouille. You can use pretty much whatever veggies you want, but traditional ingredients include zucchini, potatoes, onion, and tomatoes.

Basically, all you need are a couple of potatoes, an onion, a zucchini, a can of tomatoes, and some green beans. We substituted a bag of frozen green beans, because we are lazy, and didn’t feel like cleaning fresh ones.

Even the chopping was pretty minimal. Basically, you just chop up your veggies and bake them in the oven with some olive oil, lemon, and garlic for about an hour.

The only issue I had with the recipe from Bon Appetit was that the directions have you cool the onions and zucchini on a wire rack. But, you don’t really need to do that. When I make this again, I’ll just scoop them into a bowl.
