Easy Moussaka Recipe

I’ve always been a fan of Moussaka – but no so much a fan of the many steps involved in creating an authentic one. Then I found a Hob To Table Moussaka recipe on the BBC Good Food Website, gave it a try and was amazed at how similar it was, yet with few steps and ingredients. (See the recipe here.)

The dish really tastes like a Moussaka – you get the rich meaty sauce, loaded with eggplant and the crumbled feta tastes like the traditional greek yogurt flavoured layer. But – of course it’s not an actual, true authentic moussaka, though it’s easy to almost believe it is.

I’ve adapted and simplified the recipe further. The original recipe calls for a jar a chargrilled eggplant. And, despite searching every grocery store I could find here in Ireland, I just couldn’t find a jar. So, I used fresh eggplant instead and it turned out perfectly. 

You can feel free to adapt your Moussaka to include onion, garlic, leek or any other vegetable. I was after keeping the carb count down so stuck to just eggplant and chopped tomatoes. Also, I used beef mince because that’s what I had and it’s easier to get hold of. You can use traditional lamb mince instead.
