Moussaka (VEGAN)
Serves 2-3

1 medium onion
1 medium carrot
1 stock cube
1/2 pack (150g, 5oz) plain firm tofu
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 can (undrained can has weight 425g, 15oz) green lentils
5 tbsp tomato puree

1 medium aubergine (eggplant) (250-300g, 9-11oz)

100ml (3.5 fl oz) soya milk
2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1/4 pack (75g, 2.5oz) tofu (firm works well, could also try silken)

Peel and finely chop the onion and carrot. Saute in stock made with
the cube (or use oil if you prefer) until vegetables are softened.

Meanwhile, grate or finely chop the drained and rinsed tofu. Drain
and rinse the lentils.

Add the tofu to the pan with the vinegar and stir for another 5
minutes. Add the drained lentils and the tomato puree, and about
250ml (8fl oz) water. Stir well, lower heat and simmer uncovered
for at least 20 minutes, adding more water if necessary.. Season
to taste.

Meanwhile, to prepare the creamy topping, liquidise together the
soya milk, nutritional yeast and the tofu. Season to taste. For
the aubergine layer, slice the aubergine in 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) round

To assemble, use a square baking dish, about 20cm x 20cm. Put half
the tomato sauce in the bottom and cover with half the aubergine
slices. Repeat these 2 layers and finally pour the creamy topping

Bake at Gas 6 (200 C, 400 F) for about 1 hour until topping is set
and aubergines are soft.
