Eggplants
  1. Heat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Slice the eggplants into long 5mm wide slices. salt and brush with olive oil from both sides.
  3. place on a wide baking pan and put in the oven (the slices can touch but not cover one another). check every few minutes, when the eggplants are “tanned”- turn upside down for 5-10 more minutes.
Soy Sauce
  1. place the soy above a strainer and squeeze gently until all the water comes out.
  2. On a wide pan – fry the onions with 5 tbsp of olive oil. after 2-3 minutes add the soy, paprika, garlic and chili. stir and if needed- add some water to keep the soy hydrated.
  3. After 10 minutes, add the tomatoes, hyssop, salt and pepper. cook on a medium flame for another 15 minutes. if possible – keep cooking for another 45-50 minutes over low heat
white sauce – bechamel
  1. In order to make the white sauce – we need to use a good pot and a relatively low flame – put 4 olive oil tbsp and when hot add 3 tbsp of flour. stir constantly, you should have a small ball of oil and flour. add water steadily- 100 ml at a time and keep stirring, the “ball” would widen. add water whenever needed, you will eventually have a thick white sauce. add wine, salt&pepper and a pinch of nutmeg. add cashew cheese and take off the fire.
Creating the Moussaka
  1. Layer in the following order – eggplants, “faux meat” soy sauce, eggplants, white sauce. bake in 170 degrees C for 45 minutes. A good pan size would be- ~20X30 CM.
  2. Moussaka is the best!!
