How to make it

  • Slice the potatoes, courgettes and eggplants lengthwise into ½cm slices.
  • Deep fry them – first the potatoes, then add the eggplants and finally add the courgettes.
  • Remove them and place them on absorbent kitchen paper to drain off as much oil as possible.
  • The Sauce
  • Gently fry the onions in a large pan.
  • Add the crushed garlic and stir for 1 minute.
  • Add the mushrooms and continue stirring.
  • Add the tomatoes and bay leaves.
  • Add the parsley.
  • Continue heating until all the juice has been absorbed and you have a thick sauce.
  • The Bechamel
  • In a heavy-bottomed pan gently heat the butter until it melts.
  • Add the flour and stir continuously.
  • Add half of the milk and continue to stir with a whisk.
  • When the mixture starts to thicken, add the rest of the milk whilst stirring continuously.
  • When it starts to thicken again, lower the temperature to the minimum and add the grated cheese and then turn off.
  • In a deep oven dish place a layer with half of the potatoes at the bottom.
  • Add a layer with the courgettes on top and then a layer with the eggplants.
  • Spread the sauce on top.
  • Add a final layer with the remaining potatoes on top of the sauce.
  • Add the béchamel on top and sprinkle the remaining cheese over it.
  • Bake in a pre-heated moderate oven for approx. 40 minutes or until it has turned a golden colour on top.
