  • (1 Tablespoon) coconut oil
  • (1) medium onion, thinly sliced

Heat coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add onions and season with salt. Sauté onions until transparent. Add in garlic and 1/2 red peppers, sauté until fragrant (about 30 secs). Add in ground beef, season with salt and pepper, and break up meat with wooden spoon. Brown meat for about 8 minutes, allowing meat to crisp in some spots. Add broth and 2 cups of basil and stir for about 2 minutes until basil wilts.

While meat is cooking, add carrots, 1 tbs lime juice, rest of red chile, 1 cup of basil and olive oil to a bowl.  Toss everything together.

In a small bowl, mix together coconut aminos, 3 tbs lime juice, fish sauce, and honey.

Top cauliflower with beef mixture, then carrot salad, and drizzle about 1 tbs of sauce mixture on top.
