Beef goes brilliantly with smoky aubergines in this delicious dish – make sure you get a good charring on the aubergines for maximum smokiness!

ingredients

  • 500g lean beef mince (5% fat or less)
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes with onion and garlic
  • 3 aubergines, sliced
  • 150g extra-light soft cheese with garlic and herbs
  • 3 eggs, beaten

method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas 5.
  2. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the beef and cook for about 5 minutes or until browned, breaking up any lumps with the back of a wooden spoon. Drain off any fat then stir in the chopped tomatoes and bring to the boil over a high heat. Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Season to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, spray the aubergines with low-calorie cooking spray on both sides and season lightly. Place a non-stick griddle pan or frying pan over a high heat and, working in batches, cook the aubergines for 4 minutes or until charred. Turn, spray with more low-calorie cooking spray, season and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add alternating layers of beef and aubergine to a 1.5-litre ovenproof dish, finishing with a layer of aubergines. Beat the soft cheese and eggs together, pour over the top and bake for 40 minutes or until golden.

Tip: If you have some ground cinnamon, add 1 tsp with the beef to turn this into an easy moussaka!
