Recipe of the Week – 20th May 2013 (Part 2!) – Greek Potato and Courgette Bake


In honour of National Vegetarian Week, this is Recipe of the Week Part 2!

This is a great simple recipe that I’ve only just discovered. It is based on a Greek dish called Briam, and I’ve only changed it a little bit, as I’m a garlic addict!

Serves 4


750g new potatoes, sliced into 5mm slices

3 medium courgettes, sliced into 5mm slices

3 medium onions, sliced

2 cloves of garlic, finely sliced

1 x 400g can of good quality chopped plum tomatoes, drained

100ml olive oil

2 tbs chopped fresh parsley

1 tbs chopped fresh thyme

Salt and pepper to taste


1. Preheat the oven to 190 C. Place the potatoes, courgettes, garlic and onions in a large baking dish. Pour over the tomatoes and olive oil, and sprinkle with the chopped herbs and add the seasoning. Mix well to ensure that the veg is evenly coated. Add 75ml water to the mixed vegetables.

2. Bake for approximately 75 minutes, stirring halfway through.

3. Serve with further salt and pepper if required, and with a Greek side salad.
