Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and line three baking sheets with parchment paper.
Step 2
Cut your peeled Russet Potatoes (3) , Zucchini (2) , and Eggplant (1) and evenly coat with Olive Oil (1/4 cup) , Salt (to taste) , Ground Black Pepper (to taste) , and Dried Oregano (2 Tbsp) .
Step 3
Cook potatoes till soft, eggplant till tender and golden brown, and zucchini, till most of its liquid has evaporated (around 25-30 minutes). The reason we’re pre-cooking them is so there is no moisture in the baking dish for the moussaka. You want this to be a mix of perfectly crispy and creamy, not watery!
Step 4
To prepare your “meat” sauce all you will need in one deep pot. Start by pre-heating your Olive Oil (3 Tbsp) and adding your White Onion (1) . Cook them down on medium-low heat for around 5 minutes or until soft.
Step 5
Add in your Garlic (3 cloves) , Bay Leaves (2) , Salt (to taste) , Ground Black Pepper (to taste) , Dried Basil (2 Tbsp) , Dried Oregano (1 Tbsp) , Vegetable Broth Paste (1 tsp) , Ground Cinnamon (1/2 tsp) , Ground Cloves (1/4 tsp) , and give your mixture a good stir. Cook for 3 or so more minutes on medium-low heat.
Step 6
At this point your home should smell fabulous. Add in your Brown Lentils (2 cans) , Black Beans (1 can) , Crushed Tomatoes (1 can) , and Coconut Sugar (1 Tbsp) . Give it all a good stir before turning heat to low and popping on a lid and reducing for around 20 minutes. You want the sauce to reduce enough that it’s thick but not stew-like! Once cooked set aside.
Step 7
To assemble, place a layer of potatoes onto a plate, then some zucchini, eggplant, lentil meat sauce, Tomatoes (as needed) and repeat one more time. Garnish with fresh parsley and your choice of fixings.
