Lathera (The Oily Dish)
From: Evangelos Doussis

The following is a variation of Briami, different presentation the veggies come out crispier this way

  • 4-5 medium size zuccini, cut in 1/4 in. disks
  • 3-4 medium potatoes, cut in 1/4 in. disks
  • 1-2 medium onions, sliced in thick rings
  • 1-2 medium tomatoes, sliced in 1/4 in. disks
  • 6-7 cloves garlic, peeled and whole
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (or any other oil)
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tblspoons oregano (save for the end!)
Arrange in loose layers in the baking tray.
Try and keep the onion rings at the bottom of the pan, they get nice and crispy, and the tomatoes go at the top of the assembly, to let the juices drain down onto the veggies
bake for about 1 hour, at medium oven.

The oregano should be added a few minutes before taking the tray out of the oven
- burnt oregano loses its flavour, and has a bitter taste allow to cool before eating
