Turkey Moussaka is a Greek inspired take on eggplant lasagna, with a Greek yogurt sauce replacing the traditional bechamel and it tastes amazing.
As someone who loves eggplant, moussaka is a dish I have always loved. Eggplant, ground meat, potatoes, and a cheesy sauce - you can't really go wrong. Unfortunately the traditional version is also loaded with calories and fat. Not the healthiest dishes. However this version is just as delicious but made lighter and low carb without sacrificing flavor.
It all starts with roasted eggplant. This step is incredibly important so that the eggplant doesn't get watery and create a liquidy moussaka. The roasting also adds great flavor to the dish. This is combined with a layer of ground turkey seasoned with garlic, cinnamon, nutmeg, tomato paste, onion, and red wine. Then everything is finished with a simple white sauce made with Greek yogurt and Parmesan cheese. Yum
