Serves 6.

There is no traditional broccoli dish in Turkish cuisine, as far as I know. This is my idea to make moussaka with it and it turned out very well.


  • 1/3 lb of ground beef
  • 2 lb of fresh broccoli
  • 1 large onion (chopped )
  • 10 cloves of garlic (chopped )
  • 1 fresh green pepper ( chopped )
  • 2 large size of tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp of tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 1/3 tsp of black pepper
  • salt

Take ground beef and vegetable oil in a large pot and cook it until the beef absorbs all of its juice, stirring occasionally . Add chopped onion, chopped pepper, and garlic into the pot. Saute them on medium heat for 10 minutes then add tomato paste and continue to cook for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, cut broccoli florets, wash, and  drain.  Take them into the pot. Add black pepper and salt. Stir them all together. Peel the tomatoes and cut them into cubes. Place tomatoes on top of other vegetables and turn the heat down to low. Put the lid on and cook for 30 minutes.
