Kind of like a Greek lasagna, this moussaka combines lamb and eggplant in a luscious stove-top dish. In place of béchamel sauce, it’s drizzled with minty yogurt.

Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Toast the flatbreads

Heat the oven to 350°F.
On a sheet pan, place the flatbreads side by side, brush the tops lightly with oil, and season lightly with salt. Bake until lightly browned and starting to crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly, then cut into 1-inch-wide strips.
While the flatbreads toast, start preparing the moussaka.

2

Start the lamb moussaka

  • Peel and coarsely chop the shallots.
  • Cut a small corner from the ground lamb packages and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the lamb and moussaka spice blend, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until browned and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the lamb to a plate. Spoon off all but 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] fat from the pan.
While the shallots and lamb cook, prepare the eggplant.

3

Prep the eggplant; finish the moussaka

  • Remove the stem from the eggplant; peel the eggplant, if desired. Cut the eggplant in half lengthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into 1-inch-thick strips, the strips lengthwise into 1-inch-wide sticks, and the sticks crosswise into 1-inch cubes.
In the same pan used for the lamb, warm the residual fat over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the eggplant, season generously with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggplant is starting to break down, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and either ¼ cup [½ cup] red wine (from your pantry) or water and cook until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes. Using the back of a spoon or a masher, coarsely mash the eggplant and tomatoes.
Stir in the lamb and any accumulated juices and cook until the lamb is warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the moussaka cooks, prepare the mint-yogurt sauce and the arugula salad.

4

Make the sauce and arugula salad

  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, mint, and 1 to 2 tablespoons water. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
In a medium bowl, toss the arugula with 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the lamb moussaka skillet to the table. Drizzle with as much mint-yogurt sauce as you like and top with the arugula salad. Serve the flatbread strips and any remaining sauce on the side.
