Here’s a fun and fast side dish that’s great to accompany any Mexican food inspired main dish. I suggest serving this with Sarah’s Beyond Easy Pulled Pork.  Enjoy!

    Great recipe! Here cauliflower is always blanched then fried then served with a tahini sauce; delicious, but a bit on the caloric side. Will try your version next week!

    I am wanting to make this for my daughter but she can not have coconut oil. What else would you suggest. Thank you.
