Briami inspired by Cat Cora

Last month, my family and I took photos and celebrated my birthday dinner at Cat Cora’s Kouzzina at Disney’s Boardwalk.  I had never even heard of Briami before, but as soon as I read the menu description, I knew I wanted to try it.

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!

Kale, Mac, & Parm

I have been on a kale kick lately.  It’s all the rage and the list of health benefits are seemingly endless.  Kale is full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein, iron, antioxidants and it has a reputation as a superfood.  I have had it juiced, especially since it is associated with detoxing and weight loss.  However, when it is mature and raw it is very bitter.  In juices, I have to dilute it with a lot of fruit juice.  In this dish it’s cooked so it is not tough or bitter – making this an easy, fast, yummy meal!
