What the heck is a Moussaka? I have never heard of this in my life. Apparently it is made all over the world as a layered dish involving tomatoes, eggplant, and some kind of meat. This vegan recipe doesn’t involve any meat, but it may be the best dish I have ever tried!!
The Eggplant-Potato Moussaka with Pine Nut Cream (pg. 164) may be my new favorite food! That’s how much i liked it! Its layer after layer of roasted eggplant, zucchini, and potato, bread crumbs and tomato sauce. Then it’s topped with a smooth cream made from tofu and pine nuts!
Now the cream sounds kind of weird and it tastes gross raw, but once cooked it adds a kind of ricotta feel to this lasagna-type dish. But thats not the weirdest part. That tomato sauce that’s all throughout it is actually spiked with cinnamon. CINNAMON!!! But as weird a flavor combination as that is, this is the best tomato sauce i’ve ever tried!
But this thing is like one big amazing lasagna. Plus its just a bunch of veggies, so you can eat as much of it as you want!
