Instructions

Get Prepped
1
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Trim the carrot, then quarter lengthways (no need to peel). Chop widthways into small pieces.
  • Trim the aubergine, then slice into rounds approximately 1cm thick.
Cook the Mince
2
  • Place a large pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • When hot, add the carrot and fry until softened, 4-5 mins, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the beef mince and cumin, then cook until browned, 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Use a spoon to break up the mince as it cooks. Season with salt and pepper.
Start Your Sauce
3
  • Stir the passata and chicken stock into the pan.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Simmer until thickened, 15-20 mins, stirring occasionally.
Roast the Aubergine
4
  • Meanwhile, pop the aubergine onto a large (lined) baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat.
  • Spread out in a single layer, then roast for 15-20 mins. Turn halfway through. 
  • Once cooked, remove from the oven.
Bake Until Bubbling
5
  • When the beef mixture has thickened, spoon it into an oven dish.
  • Lay the roasted aubergine slices on top.
  • Spread the creme fraiche over with the back of a spoon, then sprinkle on the Italian style hard cheese.
  • Bake the moussaka until it's bubbling and the top has browned, about 8-10 mins.
Dish Up
6
  • Once cooked, remove the moussaka from the oven.
  • Allow it to stand for a few minutes before serving.
  • Spoon into bowls to serve.
