Low-Carb Moussaka

Traditional Greek moussaka stars eggplant fried in plenty of olive oil and ground lamb layered with a white sauce enriched with egg yolks, so it’s not light by any means. We halve and roast the eggplant instead and top the eggplant boats with a lean ground beef tomato ragu seasoned with warming cinnamon and oregano. Instead of a heavy cream sauce topping, we serve the eggplant boats with a creamy feta-garlic Greek yogurt sauce. It’s filling Greek comfort food without loads of fat.

RD Tip

Eggplant contains anthocyanins, antioxidants that, among other benefits, can help improve the diversity of bacteria in your gut, which can help fight disease.
