 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       lb           (about 4) eggplant,
                         -stems removed
    2       ts           Salt
      1/4   c            Corn oil
    4                    Cloves garlic, chopped fine
      1/2   c            Tomato sauce
    6       oz           Tomato paste
    1 1/2   c            Water
    2                    Eggs, beaten
      1/2   lb           Mozzarella cheese, grated
     This Jewish-style moussaka does not have meat since
   the kosher laws prohibit mixing meat and milk
   together.  The result is a complete vegetarian dish
   with considerable dimension.
     1.  Cut each eggplant lengthwise into 3 equal
   slices.  Sprinkle with the salt and let stand for 20
   minutes,  Dry the slices on paper towels to absorb the
   liquid that accumulates.  Set aside.
     2.  Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a pan and
   stir-fry the garlic over moderate heat until golden,
   about 2 minutes.  Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste,
   and water and mix well.  Simmer the sauce over low
   heat until it becomes thickened, about 15 minutes.
     3.  Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil in a
   skillet.  Dip the eggplant slices into the beaten eggs
   and fry over moderate heat for 2 minutes.  Fry all the
   eggplant slices this way.
     4.  Assemble the moussaka in this manner.  Put a
   layer of eggplant in a heatproof glass or metal baking
   dish.  Cover with about 1/2 cup of the cooked tomato
   sauce.  Sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons of the
   grated cheese.  Cover this another layer of eggplant,
   then sauce, then cheese. The last layer (there should
   be three) ends with the cheese. Bake in a preheated
   350 degrees F oven for 1/2 hour.
     Serve warm.  Serves 6 with spaghetti or other dishes.
