Roasted Corn + Poblano Risotto

Briami inspired by Cat Cora

Cat Cora inspired Briami recipe from the restaurant Kouzzina.

Traditional Greek Briami is a dish of oven roasted vegetables with cheese.  Chef Cora took it up a notch by serving it over an herbed orzo.  It was fantastic!  I even put a photo of it on Instagram and promised I’d try to replicate the dish for you, so here’s what I came up with!
