Vegetarian Moussaka

Vegetarian Moussaka


  • 500 grams eggplants
  • 500 grams potatoes
  • salt
  • olive oil
  • 100 grams ground TVP (dry)
  • 1 l vegetable stock
  • 2 onions
  • 4 large tomatoes
  • pepper
  • cinnamon
  • oregano
  • 1 l milk
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 tablespoons flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 100 grams ground hard cheese, such as Parmesan
  • nutmeg powder


Cut off the eggplant ends, wash the eggplants, cut them in slices. Salt the slices to get the bitter liquid out. Dry the slices with kitchen paper and fry them in olive oil until gold-brown. Wash and peel the potatoes, cut them in slices, approx 1cm thick, and fry them in olive oil until gold-brown. Simmer the TVP in vegetable stock (ready made stock will do perfectly) for at least 30 minutes. Peel the onions and chop them finely. Cut the tomatoes slightly crosswise on top and bottom, put them in boiling hot water for 5 minutes, then peel them and cut them in small pieces. Fry the onions shortly in olive oil, add the tomatoes and the TVP (possibly with the stock), spice with a pinch of salt, pepper, cinnamon (which actually is *the* mystery of many Greek dishes!) and 1 tablespoon oregano, simmer for at least 15 minutes. Prepare a sauce "bechamel" with milk, olive oil, flour and eggs, add the ground cheese and spice with a pinch of salt and nutmeg powder. Grease a large oven-proof dish with some olive oil, put the potato slices on the bottom, add the eggplant slices, then the TVP-tomato mix, and top it with the sauce "bechamel". Put the moussaka in the oven for at least 60 minutes at 200 degrees centigrade or until the sauce "bechamel" on top gets gold-brown.
