[Recipe] – Paleo Moussaka – Protein/Carb – Often

pvip_eggplant

Is Grimace from McDonald’s the last time you got near a purple object of that shape? Well fear not, because inside that purple orb is a wonderful moist texture and the ability to take on just about any flavor that you provide it.

Generally I will do a double bake of the eggplant, once to get it mushy and then a second where I mix up with seasoning and then put it back into a dish and broil it to get a crispy top. Over at the Real Food Forager, the Grass Fed Girl stopped in for a guest post and has created a paleo version of Moussaka (admittedly a word I had heard, but had no idea what it was…). Now I am not sure if real Moussaka has eggplant in it or not, but this version does and it also has ground beef in it.

I was drawn to the pictures as it looks like lasagna, and for all my paleo strictness now, I used to love me some lasagna. …. Whoa, back from memory lane… sorry folks.

I do know that there is some eggplant in the fridge, and I am due to get some ground beef from the local butcher, so I can see a dish of this goodness happening soon in a kitchen near me. 🙂

So in the comments, if you have had conventional moussaka, please share what it “normally” has in it, and the most fond memory that you have eating it.
