Here's an easy take on a Greek moussaka, using diced aubergines instead of fried aubergine slices. Cover with cooked potatoes and a traditional egg and cheese topping and leave in the oven. Serve with a salad. Delicious!

This is a clever variation on the traditional, meat-based Greek dish that is usually quite high in fat. The meat has been replaced with a selection of vibrantly coloured vegetables and the protein is supplied by borlotti beans. The dish is topped in the traditional way but with a yoghurt-based sauce.

This traditional moussaka is truly the best, and just as authentic as any you'd try in Greece! While it takes a bit of time, it's actually quite simple to make. Kali orexi! (Bon appetit!)

Greek moussaka made in individual dishes with lamb mince, tomato, oregano and a hit of cinnamon layered with aubergine slices and baked with a fluffy topping. Prepare ahead - best eaten on the day. Nice served with a mixed salad and fries.

My version of moussaka, the classic Greek dish. My family love it and its great for a dinner party too. Make it the previous day for the best flavour and add/make the topping on the day of eating! Serve with crusty bread and a Greek or mixed salad. Tip - You can make this without pre-frying the aubergine, just layer the raw slices (no thicker than 5mm) as described and add 10 minutes to final cooking time.

A traditional Greek dish with a twist. I call it Naughty Moussaka because of the cream in the topping.
