Method

  1. Brown the mince: Heat the oil in a large, shallow pan. Toss in the onion and garlic and fry until soft. Add the mince and stir fry for 3-4 minutes until browned.
  2. Season and simmer: Tip the tomatoes into the pan and stir in the tomato purée and cinnamon, then season generously with salt and pepper. Leave the mince to simmer for 20 minutes, adding the aubergines half way through.
  3. To serve: Sprinkle the crumbled feta and chopped mint over the mince. Bring the moussaka to the table as the feta melts and serve it with a crunchy green salad and toasted pitta.

Very tasty - my husband loves moussaka but I never have time to cook it. This didn't take long and was really nice. I used fresh aubergine but might try with chargrilled next time.

I was a bit unsure of this recipe initially. Being Greek, I had certain expectations from this dish. I was however pleasantly surprised with the outcome. All the taste but without 2/3 of the fuss. Excellent!

i used fresh auborgine and finished the dish, minus the feta and mint, in the oven for about an hour. I added the feta for the last ten minutes of cooking time and it was absolutely delicious. My grandaughter, aged ten, really enjoyed the meal.
