Lamb Bake with Cauliflower Crunch

I realised how versatile a head of cauliflower is. I came up with an idea one day, to make a lamb bake dish using cauliflower as a topping rather than the traditional mash potato. Instead of cheese, I sprinkled some dukkah for that roasted crunch texture.

The combination is surprisingly pretty good! I love the slight crunch of the cauliflower with the tangy lamb bake at the bottom of the pan. It's not a very fancy dish, but it is a nice warm meal on a winter night.

You will notice that I am featuring a lot of baking dishes recently. So much that it is darn tempting to re name my blog to a "Many ways to cook using an oven" blog instead. Bear with me while I am in transition at the moment to a different home/different kitchen altogether.

This does push me out of my comfort zone and I am learning how to embrace our oven for sure! LOL

Lamb Bake with Cauliflower Crunch 
500 grams lamb mince
1 red onion
1 can of diced tomatoes

I love the idea of combining cauliflower and lamb - it's a little warm for this bake on this side of the world for now, but what a great option for the cooler months!
