In addition to köfte, minced lamb is cooked into many simple, tasty dishes, such as kıymalı semiz otu, a stew of minced lamb and lamb’s lettuce, and lahana kapaması, cabbage leaves layered with minced lamb and baked. More than any of these dishes, kıymalı yumurta evokes the tastes of southern Anatolia and parts of the Middle East. It is ideal for a simple supper.
