Mediterranean Roast Veggies |Briam

Serves 4

This simple layered casserole is vegan, rich, and addictive. The vegetables cook down into a soft casserole, but can be uncovered half way through cooking to reduce the effects of steaming.

Ingredients:

1 zucchini
1 small eggplant
1  potato
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp oregano

1/4 cup olive oil
2/3 cup tomato sauce

1 1/2 quart casserole

Method:

Preheat the oven to 375F.

Meanwhile, slice all the veggies into thin discs. Resist the urge to see if they’ll fly, like frisbees, across your kitchen.

Drop some liquid sunshine (olive oil) into a 1 1/2 quart casserole (you can scale this up pretty easily, if you need to feed more people).

Layer on some potatoes…

Gather the salt, pepper, and oregano together…

And sprinkle the blend onto each layer…

Add on the eggplant… and more olive oil. Embrace the oil – this is supposed to be a luxuriously rich dish.

Next up, zucchini.

And half your tomato sauce.

Keep piling everything on in layers… with spices and oil each time…

Ending with the tomato sauce.

Roast, covered, for 1 – 1.5 hours.

Meanwhile, take a nap or stare out the window with a cup of tea. Or call someone you’ve been meaning to call.

When your timer goes off, scoop the veggies onto your plate and sigh with satisfaction. Yum!

    Is this what you fixed for Thanksgiving? It is wonderful, even Poppy Martin loved it and he is not a real veggie lover. I plan to take it to my next church dinner.

      Oh, no… that was just an improvisation… no particular recipe – just lots of veggies cut up and seasoned with olive oil, oregano, thyme, salt, pepper, and a bit of balsamic vinegar. Roasted for about an hour on 375F.

      I think I had these veggies in there: butternut squash, broccoli, bell peppers (red and green), parsnips, onion, garlic cloves, zucchini, and mushrooms. All chopped to be roughly the same size.

      Good luck! :)
