One of the vegetables I felt like cooking with the chopped meat was eggplant, so I decided to make a version of moussaka, which is layered eggplant, chopped meat and misc. (other vegetables, sauce etc.)
There are probably more versions of moussaka than chocolate cake, so my version is just as "kosher" or authentic. Yes, it's definitely kosher!
- I thawed the chopped meat for easy mixing
- and sliced up some eggplant* and sweet potato.
- Then I mixed the chopped meat with diced onions, eggs, garlic powder and a squeeze of catsup.
- And then I layered them in the "bake and serve" baking dish, eggplant on the bottom.
After that I baked it, mostly uncovered. I added foil on the top towards the end, so the top wouldn't burn.
Yes, I must admit that it was absolutely delicious and unbelievably easy to make. You can add different vegetables if you want, like tomatoes and squash. Really, there are no "laws" preventing creativity.
*There is absolutely no need to precook, fry, salt etc. the eggplant! This was a simple one-step dish. If you want an easy meal, just serve it with a nice salad and you're set!
