Briami, roasted vegetable is a great alternative to the old plain roast potatoes.

Plate of Roast Vegetables

Along with the potatoes, you have zucchini, red onion and celery roasted until the tomatoes and herbs mingle all together with the vegetables, giving the meal a wonderful fresh intense flavour.
The aroma of roasting vegetables wafting from the oven will have your taste buds dripping in anticipation for this dish.

This is great way to liven up an otherwise dull meal as well as including serving a tasty vegetable dish.

This meal in Greece is also known as briam.

Serve roasted vegetable with either roast, grilled or barbecue meat.
