for the cauliflower mash:

1 tablespoon Olive Oil
2 head Cauliflower, cut into small florets (about 12 cups)
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1 cup Coconut Milk (or favorite milk)
3 cups Vegetable or Chicken Stock
1 teaspoon Salt

for the kale:

1 tablespoon Olive Oil or Ghee
3 cups chopped Kale
3 cloves Garlic, minced

for the shrimp:

1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1 lb. Shrimp (enough for 4 people)
a few good shakes of Garlic Salt, Chili Powder, Cayenne, and/or Black Pepper


For the cauliflower: Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot. Add the cauliflower and garlic. Saute for a minute or two, until the garlic is really fragrant. Add the milk and 2 cups broth. Simmer for 10 minutes or until soft. Adjust the consistency by adding in the last cup of broth as needed. Stir in the salt and season to taste.

For the kale: Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add the greens and garlic and saute until softened. Remove kale and wipe out the pan with a paper towel.

For the shrimp: In the same skillet, add the oil over medium heat. Pat the shrimp dry. Add to the pan and sprinkle with seasonings to taste. Cook for just a few minutes and then add a quick splash of water or broth to the pan (about 2 tablespoons) to pull the browned bits and spices into something of a saucy-coating for the shrimp. It’s delicious.

Serve the shrimp and kale over a big pile of cauliflower mash!

Variations: Use any greens or veggies that you like. Switch up herbs and seasonings to add variety. Add a squeeze of lemon to the whole dish to brighten up the flavors. Add 4 ounces of grated parmesan or dairy-free cheese to the cauliflower mash.
