Serves: 4
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric powder
  • 2 (1 inch) fresh ginger grated
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 to 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Fresh Cilantro Leaves
  • Lime Wedges
  • Serrano Chillies
  1. Heat a large sauté pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the coconut oil, and when it is hot, add the cumin, mustard seeds, turmeric. When they begin to sizzle and pop, add the ginger, and garlic.
  2. Then add the cauliflower florets. Sauté until the cauliflower begins to color, 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Continue stirring until the cauliflower is half-cooked, about 5-7 minutes, lowering the heat if necessary to keep it from browning too quickly.
  3. Add the peas, along with a sprinkle of salt. Cover to let the peas steam until tender, 2-4 minutes. Sprinkle with the slivered scallions, Serrano chili, and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges. Enjoy!
