If the French have the Ratatouille, the Italians have the Caponata, the Spanish have the Pisto then the Greeks have this, the Briam. Briám (some call it Briami) is traditional Greek dish of oven baked/roasted mixed vegetables made with potatoes, aubergine, zucchini and tomatoes in olive oil seasoned with aromatic herbs. This dish is perfect for summer sharing. Let's get chopping.
