If I had to layer these ingredients it actually gives you the flavours of a Greek Mousaka. Potatoes, eggplant, and lamb mince. It was a no-brainer why I chose these specific vegetables.

Helpful Tips

Cooking the Lamb

As lamb leg steaks can be overcooked and turn tough, you want to make sure the steaks are around 2cm thick, otherwise, if thin, reduce the cooking time by baking the vegetables for 10 minutes first and then adding the steaks.

Slicing the Eggplant and Potatoes

Make sure the vegetables are cut into finger-thick wedges and sticks, otherwise, they will not cook in time.

Dairy Free

Even though I suggest adding feta and serving it with tzatziki, I have actually used dairy-free feta and made tzatziki using vegan Greek-style yoghurt. It turns out perfect.

Serve it with Tzatziki

Here is the recipe for my Greek Tzatziki and for dairy-free simply use vegan Greek-style yoghurt.

Serves 4

Prep 10 minutes

Cook 40 minutes


For the Lamb:

4-6 (approx. 600g) Lamb Leg Steaks

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons American or Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon dried Greek oregano

2 large ground cloves, thinly sliced

Generous seasoning of sea salt and cracked pepper

1 large lemon, sliced into wheels

For the Vegetables:

80ml (1/3 cup) extra virgin olive oil

1 globe eggplant, cut into sticks

8 small white potatoes, cut into sticks

2 springs of rosemary, leaves removed

2 teaspoons dried Greek oregano

1 teaspoon ground garlic

Generous seasoning of sea salt and cracked pepper

To Serve:

250g baby truss tomatoes

150g Greek feta, crumbled


1. Preheat the oven to 210°C fan forced / 230°C conventional oven / 450°F and line a baking tray with a large sheet of baking paper, making sure it’s a little longer and wider than the tray.

2. Slice and prepare the eggplant and potatoes, and place them into a large bowl. Sprinkle the rosemary, oregano, garlic, sea salt and pepper and drizzle the extra virgin olive oil. Toss to evenly coat. Spread the eggplant and potatoes onto the tray.

3. In the same bowl, add the lamb steaks, herbs, garlic, oil and mustard. Combine well, making sure the steaks are well coated. Place the lamb steaks on top of the vegetables. Then place a slice of lemon on top of each lamb steak.

4. Place another piece of baking paper over the food and start folding it to create a pocket. Start with a corner. Place the bottom paper up and over the top paper, by creasing the corner up and over the overlapping paper. Overlap each fold, and tuck one inside the other creating a ‘pocket’.

5. Place the tray into the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Then take it out of the oven, and carefully remove the top sheet of baking paper. Add the baby truss tomatoes and cook for a further 5-7 minutes so the lamb steaks can now brown a little (careful not to overcook as it will dry them).

6. Once cooked, garnish with crumbled feta and parsley and drizzle more extra virgin olive oil. Serve immediately alongside my tzatziki.


Allow to cool and divide between 4 microwave-safe containers. Optional to top with feta cheese. Store in refrigerator for up to a week. To heat, microwave for 3 minutes.
