Grilled Eggplant Moussaka Recipe
What makes the difference in this traditional Greek recipe is the grilled, not fried, vegetables, including eggplant, potatoes and zucchini. It's a lighter version of the famous Greek dish consumed in great quantities every summer in my country, by locals and tourists equally.
Eggplant, zucchini, potatoes and onion are layered with tomatoes and lentils, and baked with a bechamel white sauce.
I thought this was delicious! It was time consuming, but making this moussaka was quite enjoyable for a rainy evening with the place to myself. I brushed the veggies with olive oil and baked them in the oven at 375 degrees instead of grilling them. Each vegetable had a different cook time for me, so I would recommend monitoring and poking around a little to assess when the vegetables are soft to your liking. My final product included some water at the bottom of my baking dish, but this did not translate to a watery moussaka. The sauce was super creamy, and the feta was a delicious touch. Plus, my apartment smells amazing.
