Title: Briami
Yield: 6 Servings
Categories: Casseroles, Greek

Ingredients:

1 Eggplant
2 lb Zucchini
4 md Potatoes
2 Green peppers
1 Red pepper
2 md Onions
1 c Olive oil
4 md Tomatoes
2 Garlic cloves
1 ts Sugar
Salt and pepper,
-to taste


Prepare the vegetables: Cut the eggplant, zucchini and potatoes in bite
sized chunks (do not peel the zucchini or the eggplant). Remove the stems
and seeds from the peppers and slice them into strips. Peel and slice the
onions. Dice the tomatoes.

Saute the vegetables except the tomatoes in the olive oil in small batches.
Saute each batch for 2 or 3 minutes, then remove from the pan, trying to
drain some of the oil so that enough oil is left for the next batch. When
you're done, most (if not all) of the oil should be gone from the pan.
Place the sauteed vegetables in a baking dish and toss them briefly so that
you won't get only one kind of vegetable in one place.

Add the tomatoes into the pan and saute for a couple of minutes. Crush the
garlic and add to the tomatoes. Add the sugar, salt and pepper to taste
and simmer for another minute. Pour the tomato sauce on top of the
vegetables and bake at 350 degrees F. or until the vegetables are tender.

Serve with plenty of fresh bread and, if you like, some feta cheese on the
side.
