What I love about keto is that I can eat flavorful, delicious and comforting food every day and still lose weight. I mean what's better than that? This recipe is the epitome of comfort with a lovely Mediterranean vibe that spices up any week night dinner.
Moussaka is traditionally made with layers of potatoes and eggplants. Some versions call for zuchinni which you can totally use as well. But I found that eggplant along does the job for flavor and texture. I promise you won't even miss the potatoes!
3 large eggplant, sliced 1/8 inch discs
1 tablespoon avocado oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 lb ground beef
1 teaspoon Monkfruit Golden sweetener
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon dried oregano

Xanthan gum slurry*
