My version of a quick and simple moussaka using soya mince, aubergines, beans and potatoes! Give it a go

Serves 4


4 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 onion sliced
1½ cup frozen soya mince
1 tin of white beans (haricot), drained (tin of any other bean or green lentil will also do)
1 large aubergine, sliced thickly
2 tablespoons Cook’s Sauce (sun dried tomato paste) and 2 tablespoons tomato puree (use 4 tablespoons tomato puree if Cook’s Sauce not available)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Half vegetable stock cube dissolved in 400ml hot water
6 potatoes, thickly sliced


  1. In a little oil fry the aubergine slices quickly for a few minutes, set aside on a plate
  2. Add the rest of the oil and fry onion and garlic for a few minutes – don’t brown
  3. Add soya mince, beans, tomato puree/Cook’s sauce, oregano and stock – cover and cook for about 10 minutes to make a nice rich sauce, not too thick though
  4. Lay a few slices of potatoes in an ovenproof dish, top with aubergine slices and pour the mince and bean mixture. Cover with rest of the potato slices
  5. Cover dish and cook for 50 minutes on 200C/400F/Gas 6

  1. Hi -does the recipe call for onions? I notice that the photo appears to have onion slices. Would be a nice addition.

    1. Hi Nancy, you must have seen my post as soon as I hit the Publish button! I forgot to include onions in the ingredients and added that soon after…and you are right, onions do make such a difference! Thank you for your comment and I do so hope you will have a go. It turned out really scrumptious and can be varied by adding sweet red peppers – will try that next time! Take care
