Moussaka (2)

Just popped a picture of my alternative version of moussaka on facebook and friends requested the recipe, so here we are…

Ooops! sorry, had a brainstorm and typed 1 litre of water in the mince! only need about 350ml oooops


1 onion sliced
3 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
200-250 grams frozen veggie mince
1 cup frozen edamame beans or peas
1 good tablespoon sundried tomato paste (most supermarkets keep stock this now)
2 tablespoons tomato puree
6-8 cherry tomatoes (basic cheap ones!)
1 mushroom stock cube (I used Kallo)
½ teaspoon turmeric
Little ground black pepper
6 potatoes, thinly sliced
1 large aubergine, thickly sliced
Little olive oil to brush aubergines


  1. Saute onion with garlic in olive oil
  2. Add turmeric, tomato puree, sundried tomato paste, cherry tomatoes, veggie mince, edamame beans and black pepper
  3. Add about 350ml of water and dissolved stock cube; cook on low for about 25-30 minutes until the sauce is thick (not too thick though)
  4. While the sauce is cooking, lightly brush the aubergine slices and grill on both sides until golden
  5. In a dish pour the mince sauce, top with layer of aubergines and then with several layers of the sliced potatoes
  6. Cover and cook on 200C/400F/Gas 6 for an hour
  7. Uncover and pop under grill to brown the potatoes a tad – enjoy
