  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1 can Mexican style stewed tomatoes, no salt added

Time Saving Tip: Trader Joes sells Dorot – crushed garlic and Dorot – chopped cilantro in frozen section


Add coconut oil to medium high heat. Add onions, peppers, garlic and herbs and saute until onions are soft. Add cauliflower and fry over high heat for a few minutes (until brownish). Stir in tomatoes and cook until liquid is gone. That’s it. Now beat yourself up for not doubling the recipe.
