Eggplant Moussaka is a very elaborately prepared eggplant recipe, as if you're cooking baked lasagna or any other baked pasta. The eggplant is a very simple vegetable. I mean, where Iive, eggplants are relatively cheaper compared to veggies like broccoli, caulifiower, lettuce, which are very expensive. But this cooking preparation of the eggplant is such an effort that this simple vegetable has surely leveled up like as I said, you're cooking a pasta recipe. But let's not take the eggplant for granted because this vegetable is a very rich source of the B vitamins B6, niacin and thiamin, vitamin C, vitamin k, potassium, folic acid which is good for pregnant women, magnesium, and phosphorus.
