Moussakás / moussaka
A dish occurring in various forms throughout the Middle East - it's basically a meat and vegetable 'bake', whose ingredients vary from country to country. The meat can be minced beef or lamb and the vegetable anything from aubergine through courgette to cabbage, cauliflower or spinach.
We are more-used to the Greek version, which consists of minced meat (usually lamb), layered with aubergines and sometimes potatoes, then covered with béchamel sauce. See our Recipe Section
