Turkish Cauliflower with Ground Beef ("Kiymali Karnibahar")

"Karnibahar" (trans: cauliflower) literally means "The belly of Spring" in Turkish.

Cauliflower is high in Vitamin C. This is a quick, easy, yummy recipe. It is naturally gluten-free, casein-free (GFCF), soy-free (GFCFSF), corn-free, potato-free, egg-free....!

1 large head cauliflower
1/4 lb. ground beef
1/2 of a 6-oz. can of tomato paste
1 onion, chopped
olive oil

Sautee onions in olive oil in a large soup-like pot. Add ground beef and brown it. Add tomato paste and mix. Put cauliflower on top (you can just put it in whole or cut into quarters). Add water to cover cauliflower plus some more. Add salt to taste. Cook on medium for 45 minutes or until cauliflower gets soft and falls apart.

Oh, that looks delicious! I love how you've set up your blog, BTW.

I try to sneak in cauliflower for my son, too. He has rice sensitivities and his sister is GFCFSF (was diagnosed with ASD in March). I chop up cauliflower very fine and steam it and use it as a rice substitute and he loves it.
