Greek moussaka - a lighter version

hello! :) 

It's been a while since I wrote here, but it doesn't mean I have not tried a variety of new recipes which I hope to share them here.

Today I will share my recipe for Greek moussaka . Summer time is the best time to try this recipe because you can find fresh aubergines - the most important ingredient of this dish. 

The regular recipe for moussaka calls for sour cream and grated cheese on top. I chose a lighter version: yogurt and just a tiny bit of cheese for serving. 


2-3 aubergines

1 onion 

500 gr minced meat (pork  and beef) 

2-3 cloves of garlic

tomato paste

2 eggs

250-300ml yogurt 

First, wash and cut the aubergines in slices of 1cm. Then you can either fry them with just a bit of oil, or place in the oven on a baking paper. 

While the aubergines are getting ready, you can prepare the sauce: onion, garlic chopped and then fried. Add the tomato paste, spices and the meat. 

In a tray, place the slices of aubergines, slightly one under another, like scales of a fish. Depending on how much sauce there is and how many aubergines you have, there can be more levels. So add the sauce and another level of aubergines and so on till ingredients are finished. In a bowl, mix the eggs and yogurt and then add the mix on top of the aubergines and meat. 

Bake in the oven for 45min-1h at 180 degrees Celsius. 

And voila, the final result: 

 Bon appetit! :)
