Better For You Moussaka

Back to Recipes

Moussaka is a type of Greek lasagna made using layers of eggplant and spiced meat, covered in a buttery béchamel sauce. This version of moussaka, however, keeps the fat content in check and the protein content high by using baked (rather than fried) eggplants, and a mixture of VOSKOS® Greek Yogurt and eggs instead of butter for the creamy béchamel sauce. It’s a family-friendly meal that’s great as leftovers.

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggplants, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 4 medium garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
