Lentil Moussakka Monday, September 23, 2013, 07:07 AM
It's not the prettiest picture, but I made lentil moussakka. I followed my moussakka recipe (since changed to note lentils) and my post from last time. Based on the suggestions of the last lentil attempt, I cooked the lentils separately and added it to the main mixture when the time came. I also ~1.5x all of the spices. I do not think it is needed for the beer one, but the lentil one does.
A few other changes were that I cooked the eggplant on a cooling rack over the pan. It think they crisped a bit more. And I forgot the butter in the béchamel. It didn't make too much of a difference making think I can skip it.
I made it on Sunday and refrigerated it and then cooked it tonight at 375 for about 45-55 minutes (I turned off the oven at 45 and let it sit as I did some other things).
It came out really, really good. Lots of flavor and good texture. The lentils were a tad over cooked but really not bad. I would definitely consider doing it with lentils over beef again.
