Place a wok or a large pan on medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. When the pan is hot, add the onions and sauté for a few minutes, until soft.

Add the pine nuts and sauté them for a few more minutes, until lightly browned. Stir in the tomato paste, add the currants, salt, sugar, and cinnamon, give it a good stir.

To assemble the moussaka, layer half of the eggplants on the bottom of your oven dish. The size for the oven dish should be approximately 24cm x 17cm x 7 cm (9.5" x 6.5" x 3")

Sprinkle some salt on eggplant layer, spoon half of the tomatoey filling, and spread it evenly on top of the eggplants.

Layer the rest of the eggplants on tomatoey filling and then sprinkle more salt. Top the eggplants up with the rest of the filling. Cover the dish and then put it in the 180 ° C oven.

Cook for 45 minutes and then remove the lid/tin foil. Cook for 20 more minutes or until the eggplants are softened and the sauce has thickened. Click on 👇 "learn more" for the full recipe.
