Oven dish
Baking Sheet with Baking Paper
Pan with Lid


Roast the Aubergine
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Trim the aubergine then slice widthways into 1cm thick rounds.
  • 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.
  • Roast until golden and softened, 15-20 mins. Turn halfway through. Once cooked, remove from the oven and set aside.
Soften the Carrot
  • Meanwhile, trim the carrot and quarter lengthways (no need to peel). Chop widthways into ½ cm pieces.
  • Place a large pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • When hot, fry the carrot until softened, stirring occasionally, 5-6 mins.
Brown the Mince
  • Reduce the heat to medium-high.
  • Add the cumin and beef mince.
  • Cook until beef is browned, 5-6 mins. Use a spoon to break up the mince as it cooks. Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince. Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Start Your Sauce
  • Stir the passata, stock powder and ½ tsp sugar (double for 4p) into the pan.
  • Cover and simmer for 4-5 mins.
  • Once simmered, stir through a knob of butter.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.

TIP: Loosen the sauce with a splash of water if you feel it's too thick.

Bake Until Bubbling
  • When the beef mixture is ready, spoon it into an appropriately-sized oven dish.
  • Lay the roasted aubergine rounds on top.
  • Spread the creme fraiche over with the back of a spoon and sprinkle on the cheese.
  • Bake on the top shelf of the oven, until the cheese is bubbling and golden, 8-10 mins.
  • When 5 mins of cooking time remain, pop the baguettes into the oven to warm through, 2-3 mins.
Finsh and Serve
  • Once cooked, remove your beef moussaka from the oven.
  • Allow to stand for 1-2 mins before serving.
  • Once ready, divide between bowls.
  • Serve with warm baguette alongside.
