Add the chopped garlic and onions. Stir for a few seconds until it begins to sizzle in the oil and the onions soften.Once the onions are soft, add in the soaked soya granules, cinnamon powder, oregano and saute until the soy looks crumbly. At this stage, add in the tomato puree and the roughly chopped basil leaves, some salt, pepper, sugar, and stir well to combine. Simmer for 5 minutes and turn off the flame. *For the Bechamel Sauce: Heat a pan on medium low flame, to this add butter. Once the butter has melted completely, add in the flour. Continuously stir the butter – flour mixture, for a good 3-4 minutes. Now reduce the heat, and gradually add in the milk with one hand and whisking vigorously. Increase the heat to medium – low and continue to whisk until the sauce thickens. As the sauce reaches the consistency of your choice, turn off the heat. Add in the cheese spread, salt, pepper powder and mix well. Set aside. *To assemble the Grilled Vegetarian Moussaka Recipe With Soy Granules:Preheat the oven at 200 degree celsius. In a deep baking dish, start by making a layer of the grilled eggplant at the bottom followed by a layer of the  soya tomato basil sauce over it. Next a layer of the bechamel sauce. Repeat the process of layering the eggplant, soya tomato basil sauce and the bechamel sauce. Repeat this until the dish is 3/4 th full. Finally, add a generous layer of cheese and top with a layer of grilled zucchini, top with very little grated cheese and flash bake in the oven for 15- 20 minutes or until the top is a nice golden brown colour. Serve the Grilled Vegetarian Moussaka Recipe for a weeknight dinner or make it as part of your dinner party menu planning, with Apple Cucumber Minty Salad Recipeand Whole Wheat Rosemary Focaccia Bread Recipe for a weekend brunch.
