2 tbps olive oil
1 large onion, finely chopped

2 tbsps tomato puree
2 tsp ground cinnamon
200g jar chargrilled aubergines, drained and chopped
3 tbsps fresh chopped mint

Brown the mince: Heat the oil in a large, shallow pan. Toss in the onion and garlic and fry until soft. Add the mince and stir fry for 3-4 minutes until browned.
Season and simmer: Tip the tomatoes into the pan and stir in the tomato purée and cinnamon, then season generously with salt and pepper. Leave the mince to simmer for 20 minutes, adding the aubergines half way through.
To serve: Sprinkle the chopped mint over the mince. For family members not following the nutrition plan sprinkle crumbled feta over the top.
Bring the moussaka to the table as the feta melts and serve it with a crunchy green salad or green vegetables.
