Cauliflower and Chicken Makloubeh
Have you ever cooked upside down? Makloubeh (which translates literally into "upside down") is a famous Levantine one-pot rice, spice, and vegetable dish. You will find different variants of it throughout Syria, Jordan, Palestine, and Lebanon. The name makloubeh or upside down refers to the way this dish is served. You see, this dish is arranged and cooked in a pot and then it is flipped upside down to be served. This is my favorite version, cauliflower chicken makloubeh, but you can use eggplants or a combination of eggplant and cauliflower, and you can add potatoes, carrots, or even chickpeas. Experiment and try different combinations and see which ones you like best. Don’t like chicken? You can cook this using beef instead or skip the meat altogether and make it vegetarian.

What makes this lasagna healthier than most is the lack of meat, béchamel, and the more conservative use of cheese. The recipe only uses a pound and change, which doesn't amount to a crazy portion if you can manage to not inhale the whole pan (which might provide to be difficult). It's called skillet lasagna because it's made in a large cast-iron pan instead of the usual casserole dish. You can easily use whatever pan you like, and you can also substitute baby spinach for the arugula. Click here to see 10 Great Zucchini Recipes to Make with Your Bounty.
