There are so many versions of moussaka – with lamb, eggplants or with pork and beef.
One’s for sure though, all of them are super tasty and are one of our family all time favourites.
So, today I’m sharing Mummy’s Fast & Easy version of moussaka – it is lighter and probably quicker version but so satisfying.
You only need 3-4 main products and some seasoning – lots of veggies,  choose beef or pork and juicy egg layer on top.
So why not give it a try today?

  1. Heat a pan with the sunflower oil. Place the onions and potatoes and add 1/2 cup of water. Cook for about 10 minutes so they can soften.
  2. Add the beef mince and the carrot. Season with salt, cumin, black pepper and thyme. Stir well.
  3. Cook for another 5 minutes and then add the peas and the tomatoes.
  4. Meanwhile prepare the egg sauce by simply whisking the eggs and the yogurt. Place the moussaka mixture in a baking dish and cook in the oven for about 20 minutes.
  5. Take it out and pour over the sauce. Cook for another 10 minutes until golden.
  6. Serve hot with some yogurt on a side.

Tip: To add a meatier flavour use 200g pork mince/200g beef mince.
