Kafta Bel Seneye (Baked Kafta)

Growing up in a Lebanese household, kafta bel seneye was one of the things my parents cooked when they were busy and wanted a quick healthy dish, so to me this was ideal to learn at this point.

So I asked  my dad to buy me the Kafta from our butcher in Sharjah (Yes he goes all the way there for the meat, so it is pretty darn good!)

Also who knew a Lebanese staple dish could be made Paleo so easily?
