13 ingredients

  1. 1 avocado
  2. 2 cups cauliflower
  3. 1/4 tsps cayenne pepper
  4. 8 oz chicken breast
  5. 1/4 cups cilantro
  6. 3 tsps coconut oil
  7. 2 tsps coconut sugar
  8. 3 tsps coconut sugar
  9. 3 tsps ground cumin
  10. 1 tbsp honey
  11. 1/2 plantain
  12. 2 servings sea-salt
  13. 2 tbsps unsweetened coconut flakes

Instructions

  1. Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees and spread the coconut on a small baking sheet. Cook until golden brown, only 2-3 mins. Watch CLOSELY as coconut burns quickly.
  2. Additionally, place a grill pan on your grill and preheat to medium heat. (I do this while I prep all the ingredients.)
  3. Place the cauliflower in a medium bowl and toss with 2 tsp of the coconut oil, reserving the rest for later.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss into the heated grill basket. Cook until tender, with some charred spots, about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Lay the VERY thinly sliced plantains in a single layer on a plate and brush them with half of the remaining coconut oil (about 1/2 tsp.) Then, sprinkle on half of the coconut sugar (about 1 1/2 tsp.) Flip and repeat. They may be a little hard to flip, so be gentle! Set aside.
  6. Remove the cauliflower from the grill and cover to keep warm. Then, in a small bowl, combine the cumin, coconut sugar, cayenne pepper and a pinch of salt and pepper. Dry the chicken off and really rub all of the spice blend on both sides of the chicken.Grill until no longer pink inside, about 4-5 minutes per side, flipping once.
  7. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  8. Let rest for 5 minutes.While the chicken rests, place the plantains on the grill. Immediately flip the plantains in the order that you put them on. Then, remove them. You want them a little bit crispy and charred, and they cook almost instantly!
  9. Place on a plate and cover to keep warm.
  10. Place the cauliflower into a small food processor, along with cilantro and pulse until broken down and "rice-like." Stir in the toasted coconut flakes.Divide the cauliflower between two bowls, followed by the plantains, mashed avocado and the grilled chicken.
  11. Drizzle the bowls with honey (1/2 Tbsp per bowl) and DEVOUR.
