How to make Stuffed Aubergine Moussaka
- Scoop out the aubergine flesh and dice. Put a bit of salt and lemon juice over the two empty halves, turn upside down and set aside.
- Fry the onion and mince to brown, then add in the diced aubergine, tomatoes, puree and lentils to cook through.
- Divide the mixture into the two aubergine halves. Bake them at 190 degrees C for 40 minutes, during which you can prepare the sauce.
- Sauce: gently heat the milk, butter and flour in a pan til it starts to simmer. Take off the heat and slowly beat in the cheese and egg.
- Add the sauce to the top of your stuffed aubergines once they're cooked through, then return to the oven for another 15 minutes to cook the topping.
