After-work kitchen - Oriental delight: recipe for a warming minced eggplant pan with potatoes and feta cheese

It's the end of the day. Instead of reaching for the usual suspects like pasta, pizza and the like, an oriental minced eggplant pan with potatoes and feta would be an equally tasty idea. Quick, easy to make and incredibly aromatic, it brings variety to the kitchen even on long working days.

This recipe is based on the Greek moussaka, but uses tomatoes, feta and other spices instead of béchamel sauce and eggs. The dish doesn't need an oven either - but the pleasant warming effect of the dish remains and is a real treat, especially in winter.
