Today we will speak about greek mediterranean diet. Greek cousine is a type of the mediterranean diet and uses high quantities of vegetables, rich in fiber, minerals and antioxidants very important for our health, and extra virgin olive oil, with anticancer properties.
In this article I will describe a very tasty recipe of greek cousine: briam, a dish made with eggplants, zucchini and onions.
Try to imagine: you are in a greek restaurant, a taverna, so greek people call their restaurant, you sit on a chair in front of the blue greek sea.
Here you have the recipe of this dish of the greek mediterranean diet:
