There is no food more SUMMERY and TASTEFUL than this : Briam with Gnocchi & Parmesan!
The Greek Briam recipe is basically roasted vegetables with tomato sauce and olive oil! We usually make it every summer, picking all the vegetables from our garden: zucchini, tomatoes, fresh herbs, carrots, eggplants, peppers. Our SECRETS are the extra virgin olive oil from our olive trees and the local feta cheese!
Today, we tried to make a new way of Βriam, a Greek – Italian way, with Gnocchi instead of potatoes and Parmesan instead of feta cheese!
