Ingredients Needed

  1. 4 slices bacon
  2. head cauliflower
  3. green pepper
  4. medium onion
  5. cup (30 g) sliced stuffed olives

Cooking Instructions

Chop the bacon into small bits and start it frying in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat.

(Give the skillet a squirt of nonstick cooking spray first.

) Chop the cauliflower into bits about inch (1.

3 cm).

Chop up the stem, too; no need to waste it.

Put the chopped cauliflower in a microwaveable casserole dish with a lid, add a couple of tablespoons (30 ml) of water, cover, and microwave for 7 minutes on high.

Give the bacon a stir, and then it's back to the chopping board.

Dice the pepper and onion.

By now some fat has cooked out of the bacon, and it is starting to brown around the edges.

Add the pepper and onion to the skillet.

Saute until the onion is translucent and the pepper is starting to get soft.

By the time that confluence of events transpires, the cauliflower should be done.

Add it to the skillet without draining and stir?the extra little bit of water is going to help to dissolve the yummy bacon flavor from the bottom of the skillet and carry it through the dish.

Stir in the olives, let the whole thing cook another minute while stirring, and then serve.
