Zucchini Moussaka is a meal that takes some time to prepare but it is well worth the effort. The meaty sauce, the fried vegetables and the cheesy layers combine to make an amazing meal that you’ll want to make over and over again. If you have never tried moussaka before, I urge you, take the plunge and try it now! It tastes even better the next day.
Moussaka is traditionally made with minced beef or lamb but in an effort to make it slightly healthier and cost effective I have used a combination of lentils and mince beef in this recipe. No one in my family complained, I don’t think they even noticed. Next time I might make it completely vegetarian and use the lentils only. You can substitute the lentils for mince if you’d prefer.
If you’re after a really decadent night, you could finish this meal off with a Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding.
