Cook Greek food at home with this vegetarian moussaka using seitan mince

Are you a fan of Greek food? Greek cuisine is well known for its meat dishes. In this recipe we’ve done something a bit different: it’s Greek food, but without the meat. We’ve created a vegetarian moussaka. This moussaka is made with potatoes, aubergines, and fresh & creamy Greek yoghurt. The moussaka is vegetarian because we’ve used mince made from seitan. This is vegetarian mince of vegetable origin.

you can serve this dish in one big casserole dish (which you can make in advance and slip into the oven just before serving) or in individual glass dishes, one for each person. It makes a perfect snack!
