Lamb moussaka rolls

Lamb moussaka rolls

Lamb moussaka rolls is a traditional, savoury Greek casserole dish that is an excellent family dinner. Why not try it?

This healthy recipe uses a combination of lamb mince, vegetables and herbs that are easy to source or grow yourself.

The casserole is a low-carb recipe and uses the tasty, fried brinjals in which to roll up the spicy lamb mince, which is then baked in a succulent tomato and herb sauce.

Serve the rolls up with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese and a fresh green garden salad.

 

Prep time: 15 minutes

Serves 4-6

Ingredients

2 large brinjals

45ml Sunfoil Sunflower Oil

1 red onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, crushed

500g lamb mince

10ml ground cumin

15ml ground coriander

15ml tomato paste

salt & milled black pepper

45ml fresh coriander, chopped

1 x 400g jar tomato-based pasta sauce

 

To serve:

60ml Parmesan cheese

Fresh green salad

Fresh coriander leaves, optional

 

Method

1. Slice the brinjal lengthwise, into long thin strips.

2. Brush each side with some oil. Heat a griddle pan to high heat and cook the brinjal slices, in a single layer, for 2-3 minutes per side or until tender.

3. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and cook the onion and garlic over a medium heat for 5 minutes.

4. Increase the heat and add the mince, cooking until browned.

5. Stir in the cumin, coriander and tomato paste.

6. Cook for 2 minutes and remove from the heat.

7. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the fresh coriander.

8. Allow to cool for 15 minutes.

9. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

10. Pour the pasta sauce into an ovenproof dish.

11. Lay a brinjal slice on a chopping board and place 2 tablespoons of the mince mixture at one end and roll up into a cannelloni-like shape. 12. Place the roll, end side down, into the baking dish, in a single layer. Repeat with the remaining brinjals and mince mixture.

13. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Serve with a green salad and top with fresh coriander, if desired.
