Recipe Directions for Vegetarian Moussaka (allrecipes.com)

  1. Sprinkle eggplant slices with salt and set aside for 30 minutes. Rinse and pat dry.

  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly brown eggplant and zucchini slices on both sides; drain. Adding more oil if necessary, brown potato slices; drain.

  4. Saute onion and garlic until lightly browned. Pour in vinegar and reduce. Stir in tomatoes, lentils, 1/2 the juice from lentils, oregano and parsley. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 15 minutes.

  8. Pour sauce over vegetables and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, for another 25 to 30 minutes.
