Briam






“Briam“ is the response that vegetarians will hear nine times our of ten when asking waiters what the vegetarian option is in their restaurant. It’s possible that Briam will become a little dull after this! Briam is essentially mixed vegetables baked in an oven.

There is no rule about what must be in a typical briam, but you can expect to find potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, onions, garlic, aubergines, courgettes, peppers, peas and parsley. No matter what vegetables your briam contains, it will be cooked in olive oil. Briam gets its distinctive taste from the oil, the garlic and onions – this combination makes for a mouth-watering smell, too!

Briam done right is a delicious and healthy dish. Greeks eat it with plenty of bread to fill them up – it’s the perfect light lunch. Though not all tavernas serve Briam, many do, and you’ll find it among the cheaper dishes on the menu (around €4-5.50)
