    Oh that looks so good! I will have to try that when my husband stops flirting with a vegan diet. I love moussaka and haven’t thought to try to make it in a long time. Thanks for reminding me and to your sister for sharing the recipe!

    I just love what you said about your sister. She sounds like a special person. I had the same problem growing up–my little brother was always prettier than me. Blond curls, chubby cheeks, pretty smile. Oh well, at least he doesn’t look like Angelina Jolie now. I was tempted by some beautiful eggplant at the farmers’ but had no idea what to do with it. I think I know now.

    @Celiacs in the House, Eggplant is one of those veggies you need a plan for, huh? Sometimes I broil it, other times I grill it. But it’s not at all like broccoli or cauliflower. Those are no brainers. :)

    Awe, I am pretty sure your sister feels the same way about you! The moussaka sounds amazing – I thought at first it had a crust on top – and was pleasantly surprised!

    Oh, what a lovely tribute to your sister, Amy! I have to stand on the other side of the room from my sister, too, but I adore her. :-) And, look at this moussaka … wow! Dishes like that make everyone want to be vegetarian. ;-)

    This looks surprisingly delicious! Not that I would ever doubt your prowess in the kitchen. However, eggplant “moose caca” is hard to make appetizing for me! You did it!

    Oh, I love moussaka, and it’s been a comfort food staple of mine since my deep-South mom, for reasons unclear, started making it 50 years ago. This looks like an excellent vegetarian version of the dish – thanks Marcia! A definite must-try.

    Amy, thesis a beautiful post about your sister. And this moussaka deserves recognition: it looks so good!

    @Alta, whoops, this is, not thesis.


    Amy Reply:

    @Alta, I don’t think it’s as beautiful as your lamb moussaka…but it tastes amazing.

    This moussaka was a big hit for dinner tonight, it is definitely a keeper. Love this vegetarian version, might add some red peppers, more garlic and a little cayenne for heat next time. This recipe is so delicious you could entertain with it. Thanks Amy!

    It doesn’t matter what the recipe is, if it’s got eggplant in it, sign me up. I just can’t get enough of it. And layer it with other yumminess… sigh, I’m hungry. Thank you for sharing with Hearth ‘n Soul.

    What an amazing recipe! I love eggplant but have never made a moussaka before. I will stash this one away for future use! Sorry I am so late in commenting this week, but belated thanks for linking at Vegetarian Foodie Fridays!

    I want to try this. Is there a substitute for yogurt? (Dairy free)


    Amy Reply:

    @karen button, What would you use instead of yogurt if you were making something at home?


    karen button Reply:

    Probably almond milk, lemon juice and arrowroot. Do you think that would work?


    Amy Reply:

    @karen button, You can give it a try. :)
