Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200┬░C / 180┬░C fan.
  • Turn on a griddle pan, brush the aubergine slices with oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place on the griddle pan and char each side for approx. 2-3 minutes until the aubergine is coloured and tender, (you are looking for it to be about ┬ż the way cooked at this point) and set aside.
  • Meanwhile in a large pot heat 2 tbsp of olive oil, add onion and cook without colour until softened approx. 8-10 minutes.
  • Add garlic and spices and cook for a further 3-4 minutes.
  • Add tomato paste and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  • Add the red wine to deglaze the base of the pot and simmer until half the liquid has evaporated.
  • Add the Simply Stock Vegetable Paste and Simply Stock Mushroom Paste along with the tomatoes and passata, bring to the boil and reduce to simmer.
  • Finally add the cooked lentils and herbs and season with salt and pepper, allow the mix to simmer on a low heat for 10-15 minutes.
  • For the b├ęchamel sauce, add the plant-based milk to a pan and mix in the cornflour and nutritional yeast, while whisking.
  • Add the vegan cream cheese, salt and pepper and nutmeg.
  • Allow it to simmer on a low heat for a few minutes until it thickens. Whisk continuously and remove from the heat. Adjust seasoning as necessary.
  • To assemble your moussaka, grease the bottom of a large ovenproof dish and begin to layer the potato slices followed by the aubergines.
  • Top with half the lentil mix and begin layering again with potatoes and aubergine until all used up.
  • Top with the vegan style b├ęchamel and grated vegan cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes.
