Rate this recipe 4.3/5 (35 Votes)


  • 1/2 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 zucchini, large dice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
  • Pinch of red chili flakes
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • Optional Italian flat-leaf parsley garnish



Step 1

In a large saute pan or skillet, melt the coconut oil at medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower in first, moving often, and sauté for a few minutes or until the cauliflower has a little color to it. Cauliflower takes longer than zucchini, so we need to give it a head start.

Next add the zucchini, garlic and spices. Toss to bring everything together and continue to sauté for another 7 minutes or so. Really just until the zucchini has softened and taken on some color too. If you’re not a seasoned cook, you’ll learn to cook with your nose, not just your eyes. You can smell when garlic is still raw, when it is at its sweet spot and when it has crossed over into burnt and bitter. Obviously we’re aiming for the sweet spot! When your veggies look like this, you’re done! Transfer to a serving dish and top with some fresh chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley, if you feel like it.
