1 tbsp pesto
2 tbsp olive oil



Preperation Time

15 minutes


Trim cauliflower into florets, cutting away as much stem as possible. Break up the florets into a food processor (or high speed blender) and pulse until the mixture resembles couscous.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add diced onions, and stir to coat. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the onions are golden brown at the edges and have softened, about 8 minutes. Add the cauliflower and bell peppers, and stir to combine. Add 1 teaspoon salt, and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower has softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add spinach and stir until wilted. Remove from the heat. Add sun-dried tomatoes with some of the oil it was packed in. Finally, mix in a spoonful of pesto for finishing touch. Your tastebuds will be drifting off to the Mediterranean in no time.
