Turkish Eggplant Moussaka Recipe


2 servings

  • 1 large eggplant
  • 200 gr medium ground beef, cooked
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 or 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1/4 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 cubanelle pepper, Cubanelle peppers are light green to yellow colored with a sweet and mild flavor. They like an elongated bell pepper.
  • diced
  • 2 fresh green onions, chopped
  • 4 tbsp crushed tomato
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil


- Peel the eggplant skin in strips lengthwise. Cut the eggplant vertically in 3-4 pieces, each about 1 inch (metre in cm) thick. Then cut again horizontally, each piece about 2 inches(metre in cm) long. Soak in water with a tablespoon of salt for about 30 minutes. Then dry with paper towels.

- Pour the olive oil in a large skillet. Fry both sides of the eggplants until the colour turns medium brown. After frying, place the eggplants on a plate with paper towel to soak up extra oil.

- Meanwhile, cook the ground beef with the onions, tomato, garlic, salt and pepper. Then add the red pepper, cubanelle pepper and fresh green onions and cook for about 5-6 more minutes.

- Lay out the eggplant pieces in another pan. Put the beef mixture over the eggplants. Pour half a cup of water on top. Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes covered with the lid.

- Eggplant Moussaka goes well with rice.
