Turkish Cauliflower Musakka
Turkish musakka is a simpler, lighter dish than Greek moussaka, its better-known cousin. There’s no béchamel, no layering, no baking—the only cooking vessel needed for this version is a 12-inch skillet with a secure-fitting lid. Musakka is commonly made with eggplant, but our vegetable of choice here is cauliflower, which takes on a tender, silky texture when fully cooked. A pound of ground meat makes this dish rich and substantial. Either beef or lamb works, so use whichever you prefer. Serve the musakka with rice pilaf or warm flatbread.
tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
medium yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
