Moussaka

Tags

Moussaka moo·saa·kuh is an eggplant (aubergine or brinjal) or potato-based dish, which often includes ground beef. It is a Greek and middle-eastern dish, and one of our faves at that!  There is a big misconception between lasagna and moussaka, whilst they seem similar, they are not the same. Lasagna is an Italian pasta dish, whilst Moussaka is a Greek eggplant and potato dish, with NO pasta. Moussaka is to the Greek what Lasagna is to Italians. This is serious comfort food, in fact, it’s a low-carb comfort too!

Additional Notes

Can I make a vegetarian Moussaka?

Yes, of course, you can. Substitute the ground beef for lentils instead.

Can I make this Moussaka Vegan?

Why not give it a go?! All you need to do is substitute the following:

  • Replace the butter with a plant-based butter/margarine.
  • Substitute the mince with lentils (we’d recommend adding mushrooms),
  • Ensure that you use a vegan stock,
  • And substitute the milk in the bechamel for soy or coconut milk.
