I used this recipe, substituting carrots for half of the butternut squash.
This can be served with cheese, as in the recipe, or without it for a vegan variation.
I gave the Brussels sprouts with soba noodles another try, this time with the addition of carrot shavings. I also used black sesame seeds instead of white ones. Otherwise I stuck to the modifications described in my previous attempt. It is certainly my first choice for sprouts.
Here’s a recipe. I adapted it to fit what I had. There’s a courgette/zucchini shortage, so I used less of this ingredient. Partway through the cooking I decided to add two extra tomatoes because I thought it needed more. I had an extra green bell pepper so I tossed that in, too. It is an extremely forgiving dish.
Briam can be eaten plain but it is also commonly served with feta. If you are not avoiding dairy the addition of feta does improve this dish but it is quite good without it as well.
I used this recipe, but I started with dried chickpeas. I think the chickpeas would also be nice served with roasted vegetables or in a salad.
