Make the chile oil and coconut tahini
- In a small bowl, stir together the Aleppo chile and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Let stand while you prepare the rest of the meal.
- Juice half the lemon; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lemon; cut 1 lemon into wedges.]
Prep and cook the cauliflower
- Cut the cauliflower into 1-inch florets, discarding any leaves or thick stalks.
While the cauliflower cooks, start preparing the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients
- Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [1½ cups].
- Cut a small corner from the ground lamb packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Divide into two equal portions, one for the siniya and one for garnish.
Assemble and bake the siniya
Remove from the heat and stir in half the parsley. Spoon the lamb mixture over the cauliflower and spread in an even layer. Spoon on the coconut tahini. Bake until the siniya is starting to brown on top and the lamb is cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.
- Juice the lemon.
- Stir the coconut tahini.
- Measure the onion.
- Strip the parsley leaves.
- Garnish with the parsley.
