60g yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
¾ teaspoon ginger, grated

a dab of chili garlic sauce

In a big pot or a big wok, heat up your coconut oil. Toss in the onions with a ¼ teaspoon of garam masala and sauté a bit until the onions soften. Add in the garlic and grated ginger and cook for about 30 more seconds or until the garlic is fragrant but not at all burnt in the slightest nope never.

Toss in about half of the kale and continue to stir fry just until it wilts a bit. Add in the cauliflower, ginger slices, vegetable stock, and coconut milk. Season with the remaining garam masala, curry powder, cumin, and red pepper flakes. Salt and adjust the spices to taste.

Bring everything to a boil, cover, and reduce to a simmer for 25 minute or so.

Serve with some sliced scallions and hot chili garlic oil if you like a bit of extra heat in your food.
