I made this side dish of seasoned peas with dill, tomato, onion and oregano. This is actually an accurate representation of the colours in the dish.

I worked from this recipe, using half the oil it called for at the suggestion of a Greek friend. Unfortunately my tomatoes looked a little anaemic this time of year, so I was unable to get the bright colour of the original recipe.
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.
