‘Arnabit musa”a’a – Moussaka Cauliflower
* I small onion chopped
* 1 Cauliflower
* 3-4 eggs
* 2 Tablespoons flour
* Cooking oil
* Salt and pepper
* 2 cups tomato juice
Brown ground beef and onion, seasoning (salt, pepper) and set aside.
Remove core and leaves from cauliflower and slice into ‘trees,’ about ¼” – ½’ thick.
You may blanch the cauliflower if you prefer a softer cauliflower, or leave it raw.
Prepare a thin batter by beating together eggs, flour, seasoning and 3-4 tablespoons water. Dip the cauliflower slices into the batter and fry lightly until nicely brown.
Remove and drain on absorbent paper.
Add 1 cup of tomato juice to the ground beef. If you want a spicier taste, use either one if the seasoned V8 juices, or add hot pepper sauce to your tomato sauce. You could also use spaghetti sauce, although it will result in a thicker consistency. Grease a casserole or baking dish. Layer as follows: cauliflower, ground beef, cauliflower. Pour the remaining juice over the moussaka and bake in a preheated oven for 30-35 minutes.
