ETTEAM COOKS! ByTheWay's Meatless Moussaka

I made this for dinner tonight - pretty easy, and yummy, too!  
Doesn't that look like burger?  
It's really bulgur!  
Same texture, and you can beef it up with beef flavoring if you're not a vegetarian.

Recipe from Cooking Light on

My modifications:
Used 'Pam' for broiling eggplant
Used 2 lbs eggplant, 1 c. onions, 3/4 c. bulgur, chicken broth, 3/4 t, dried oregano, added a few chopped mushrooms; no butter or egg in bechemel; fresh grated Parmesan

Here's what I did differently:
For the bechemel, mix flour with a little bit of milk, then whisk in rest of milk. Microwave in 30 second intervals until it boils, then let it go a bit longer.  Watch as it will boil over.  

Here's what I'd do differently next time:
Add a bit of sriracha sauce, it's just a bit bland.  Might be good with a few chopped red or green peppers, too.  Maybe more cheese.
