    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Place three of the tomatoes, the 1/2 cup olive oil, red wine vinegar, sugar, parsley, mint, basil, oregano, capers, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor and process to create a fresh tomato sauce. Season with salt and black pepper; set aside. Chop the remaining tomato; set aside.
    2. Heat the 2 tablespoons olive oil in a frypan over medium heat, and cook and stir the onions until slightly golden, about 10 minutes.
    3. Stir together the onions, potatoes, eggplant, zucchini, bell peppers, okra, the reserved chopped tomato and the fresh tomato sauce, and place the mixture in a large baking tray. If needed, stir in a little water so that the vegetables are just covered with sauce.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until all vegetables are tender, about 1 hour.


    While baking, add water if necessary, but keep in mind that you want the food to be relatively dry in the end.

    Delicious! If you are using 1/2 cup olive oil, you don't need to add water, just cover the pan with aluminum foil. It should be done in about 1 hour or less at 400F. Serve with freshly baked bread! Thank you for the wonderful recipe!  -  20 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very pleased to see a recipe for Briam. This one is very good but a little too much oil for us (realize that you use a lot more Olive oil than we normally do). Anyway, cutting it back by a half worked just fine. Thanks for a good recipe.  -  03 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
