Mousakka is a Greek dish similar to lasagna but instead of pasta sheets, eggplant is used (which means it's even healthier!)

It's a mix of tomatoey lamb and creamy cheesiness, in other words, it's the ultimate comfort food! Pair with a fresh salad for a perfectly healthy - but tasty - dinner.

Ingredients (for 4 people):

  • 2 lbs. eggplant
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 1 lbs. of lamb
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 6 fresh tomatoes (seeded and diced)
  • 3 cups bechamel sauce
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 100 g grated cheese
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • A pinch of salt and pepper (for seasoning)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. 
  2. Thinly slice the eggplant, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let it stand for 1 hour.
  3. Sauté the onion in a little oil and add the minced meat. Fry until it changes color.
  4. Mix the tomatoes with the white wine. Season with salt and pepper, and cook under cover for 45 mins.
  5. In a skillet, heat up the olive oil. Add the eggplant and fry until golden brown on both sides.
  6. Grease a baking dish with butter and cover the bottom of the dish with half the eggplant.
  7. Top with the meat and tomato mixture. Finish with another layer of eggplant/ 
  8. Add the beaten egg yolks to the bechamel sauce, and 2/3 of the grated cheese. Spoon the mixture over the eggplant. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese.
