This is an adaptation of a delicious looking recipe from Asda. But I have made it free from, and used Sweet Potatoes as I can’t eat normal ones. I’ve also made it lower in fat by ommiting the full fat yoghurt, not adding cheese and of course the sweet potatoes are better for you in terms of how your body uses them for energy! Overall, a really lovely, brightly coloured, creamy dish.
And… this was a rare indulgence one as my sister hates lamb, so, since I’m back at home and the sibling had gone out, I treated mum and dad to a ‘proper’ moussaka with lamb mince. However, feel free to use beef/turkey/pork mince if you feel you would prefer that and of course, you can make it with Quorn/Soya mince if that suits you better too!
I hope you enjoy this delicious and filling meal… it’s soo quick to make and perfect for cold weather. Also great cold too… so you could even make up a batch for the week (unless that’s too organised… (and in our house it would get eaten before the week started!!)
