Courgette zucchini vegetarian moussaka our way!

The master chef recently got some inspiration. We are hitting the courgette zucchini mountain peak any minute now.

We’ve fried them, souped them, and stewed them!

But then a fellow blogger posted a moussaka recipe. The master chef didn’t want a recipe so he got started today. (We tried to find it too but that’s where I wish there was a search on liked posts!)

It didn’t hold him back!

First he sautéed the courgette (zucchini) slices.

And meanwhile made a sauce with
Chopped onion
Chopped red pepper
Two cloves Garlic
A chilli
Diced courgette
Diced mushroom
Tinned Tomatoes (ours aren’t ready yet)
And one cup of soaked dried red lentils.

Then he layered the sliced courgette and sauce in a large oven dish.

He part steamed some garden potato slices for the top layer.

The final touch was a mixture of grated vegan cheese and soya milk with a beaten egg. (The egg is optional)

It’s in the oven. We’re having it with garlic bean salad.

This was made with produce from our garden except for the cheese/egg/milk part and the tinned tomatoes.

    Looks yummy 🙂 Our favourite chutney is a spicy zucchini/fruit one which is a good thing because I make heaps of batches to last the year and it’s a great way to use some of the glut. They are so versatile but you do get to stage of despair over the sheer quantities lol

        That’s great. I’m not a big chutney fan but sweet sounds like it’s work a try. We also sautéed and froze a lot of our glut last year.

        Ah ok. We love chutneys here and enjoy this one most of all. We also freeze heaps…also makes a great chocolate cake 🙂

        Enjoyed the post on yoga by the way, I also do yoga (for fibromyalgia) and honestly, I would barely be able to move without it. It’s also helped me realise my own mind, before it was rather a mystery to me 🙂

        I wish yoga didn’t have the reputation of hippy stretching. I love it!

        I tried it several times in the 70’s and 80’s when it was all about “hippy stretching” and was disappointed by my lack of progress so gave it up. I went in with the wrong idea of what it was. When I restarted it was purely to ease and stretch my body but found it reduced my stress levels dramatically.

      It’s delicious. The lentils were an experiment that paid off.
