Eggplant is a vegetable that is a bit of a culinary chameleon. Mild in flavour, it can lend itself to many other ingredients. It can also vary in texture depending on how its prepared.

Eggplant and its many varieties are used extensively in Mediterranean cooking and this week Im providing a meatless version of Greek moussaka.

This dish typically includes ground lamb, along with eggplant and tomatoes. The topping is a creamy bchamel sauce.

This version features meaty, Portobello mushrooms in place of the ground lamb along with chickpeas to add some texture and substance. The topping is a mashed potato and cheese combination.

The seasonings that make it a classic Greek dish include garlic, oregano and cinnamon.

This easy dish can be prepared ahead and warmed up before serving. It would be ideal served with a salad of mixed greens dressed with fresh lemon juice and a bold extra virgin olive oil.

Vegetarian moussaka would be a great addition to the upcoming Easter celebration.
