This easy to follow Moussaka recipe is ideal when looking to add variety to your low carb diet. Perfect for dinner and only 17 net carbs per portion.
Traditionally a Greek Moussaka is made with Aubergines, Minced Lamb, Potatoes and a Bechamel Sauce. In this low carb version I have replaced the potatoes with butternut squash and the bechamel sauce with Greek yoghurt.
Moussaka is made by layering the vegetables with a lightly spiced lamb sauce and then baking it to integrate the delicious flavours and permeate them throughout the dish.
This simple recipe does involve several stages in the preparation so be prepared to allow time for this. This will include how to stabilise your yoghurt to prevent it curdling when cooking.
