    Jan thought you all might like this dish, which I reported enjoying on my blog! Bon appetite!

    Karnibahar Musakka

    1 small or half of a large head cauliflower
    2 T. butter
    2 T. olive oil
    1 medium onion (not the sweet kind)
    1 T. minced garlic
    1 lb. ground lamb or beef
    1 T. tomato paste
    1 green pepper
    2 medium tomatoes
    1/2 t. paprika
    cayenne pepper to taste
    1 t. dried dill weed
    1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
    1/2 c. water
    salt and pepper
    2 T. lemon juice

    Saute the chopped onion in the oil and butter till soft. Add the garlic and crumbled meat, and cook till no longer pink. Stir in the tomato paste, herbs and spices, and add the sliced green pepper, diced and seeded tomatoes, cauliflower broken into florettes, and the water. Bring the mixture to a simmer, cover, reduce heat, and cook about 45 min, or till the cauliflower is tender. Add the lemon juice, and serve.

    Tess ...... many thanks for this lovely recipe, doesn't 'Karnibahar Musakka' sound so much more exotic than Cauliflower Moussaka?

    There are so many tasty recipes for us all to share  Smile

    All the best Jan

    Hi Sharon! Smile

    Check this one out but if you're very low carb then you might want to leave the potatoes out of the recipe. Wink

    Hope this helps
