Veg and Barley Mousaka
I have adapeted this recipe from 1,000 Low-Fat Vegetarian Recipes by
Sue Spliter. The recipes in this book are not very low fat by my
standards but there are some ideas.
Note this recipe is huge. I use a very large pan. Suggest you cut
it in half for a 9inch x 13 inch pan.
2 Medium eggplants sliced and cooked in nonstick pan at 350 degrees
3 potatoes (I use red for low GI)
3 onions chopped
6 cloves garlic chopped (I like garlic)
8 Cups mushrooms sliced
3/4 C Barley cooked in 1 1/2 cup favorite broth
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon oregano
1 teaspoon thyme
2 - 3 Cups chopped tomatoes
1 med zuccini sliced
salt, pepper to taste
White sauce topping (see below)
Put potatoes, onions and mushrooms in a non-stick wok with a little
water (about 1/4 cup) simmer until potatoes almost done. Add tomato,
salt, zuccini, pepper, barley, cinnamon, oregano, thyme and garlic.
Cook an additional 5 mintues.
Put eggplant in bottom of dish. spoon over the potato-mushroom
mixture. Top with white sauce topping and sprinkle with nutmeg.
Bake at 350 degrees until lightly brown on top (about 45 min)
Cool 5 to 10 minutes before cutting.
White Sauce Topping
1/2 Cup flour
3 Cups Milk
1/2 C Egg substitute (equivalent to 2 eggs)
salt and pepper.
Heat 2 cups of the milk to almost bolilig. Stir the flour into the
remaining cup of milk. Pour into the hot milk stirring constantly and
cook until a thick sauce forms. Stir part of the hot sauce into the egg
substitute mixture then stir that mixture into the rest of the hot sauce.
