This is NOT a traditional Greek moussaka recipe. I repeat not a traditional Greek moussaka. If that’s what you are looking for, don’t waste your time.
There’s no eggplant or tomato paste in this recipe.
This is a Serbian version of moussaka or at least my parents version of this famous dish.
I ate greek moussaka once when I was in Greece and sorry Greece, I like this one better.
Making moussaka takes a bit more time than I’m willing to spend preparing food, but it’s totally worth it. This is real comfort food.

- Assemble your moussaka by layering half of the potatoes across the bottom of a casserole dish.
- Spoon the sauteed soy mince on top of the potatoes, sprinkle with finely chopped parsley.
- Arrange another layer of potatoes.
- In a mixing bowl, combine cooking cream, milk, salt, and black pepper.
