The past few weeks I’ve been in sunny Napa Valley, which is basically my happy place and also where I got married. I knew coming out here I’d probably be breaking a few keto rules, and would likely go over my normal quota of wine. But one thing I’ve learned is that there’s nothing that beats fresh food and veggies that don’t make you feel heavy and bloated.
While homefries are a dime a dozen, these keto homefries which use cauliflower instead of potato are a lighter, fresher version. The onions and pepper caramelize while the cauliflower steams, and once they meld together, you’ll be like, “potato who?”
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 head cauliflower ( chopped, flowers only)
- 1/2 yellow onion, sliced thin
- 1/4 red pepper, sliced thin
- 1/4 green pepper, sliced thin
- 1/4 yellow pepper, sliced thin
- 1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
- 1 big pinch of dried dill
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 large eggs (optional)
- In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
- Meanwhile in a bowl, add 1/2 inch of water, and then chopped cauliflower.
- Microwave for 4 minutes (or steam how you traditionally like to steam veggies)
- While the cauliflower is steaming, add peppers and onions to the skillet.
- Let cook for one minute, then add 2 tbsp of water.
- When water reduces, add another tbsp and keep adding while cauliflower steams (this helps soften and caramelize the onions and peppers).
- Once cauliflower is done steaming, let sit in the microwave for two minutes.
- Add poultry seasoning and dill to the veggies, and mix.
- Add cauliflower and mix. Let meld together for 5-10 minutes until desired softness.
- Add salt and pepper to taste. ( I used 1/4 tsp salt, and pepper to taste)
- Optional: If you like, split into two servings and top with sunny-side up eggs.
- Cheat alert: I totally bought the "fajita" mix in my produce section, where they pre sliced a batch of onions and peppers. Feel free to use 2 heaping cups of that.
