    This recipe makes enough for 2; easy to double or triple!

    Ingredients
    8 oz. grilled chicken (If you don't have already grilled chicken you can just dice the chicken and saute it in some olive oil, then set aside.)
    1/2 cup unsweetened, crushed pineapple
    1/2 cup coconut milk
    juice of 1 lime
    2 garlic clove, crushed
    pinch of cayenne pepper
    1/2 cup onion, finely diced
    1 green pepper, finely diced
    1/2 red pepper, finely diced

    3. Cook the vegetables. Put some oil in a saute pan. I used 1 teaspoon for the onions, peppers, and carrot – cook those vegetables until they're tender and starting to brown. Then I added another 2 teaspoons of oil, the cauliflower, a pretty good sprinkle of salt, and stir-fried the whole thing 'til it was hot and slightly browned.

    4. Heat the chicken. I used the microwave. You can also just throw in the chicken on top of the veggies and re-heat it that way.

    5. Assemble. Make a bed of Calypso Confetti Cauliflower on a plate, then top with the diced chicken. Remove the sauce from the stove and take a big whiff – it smells heavenly! Pour the sauce over the
