20 oz cauliflower florets
1 large tomato, diced
8 oz onion, thinly sliced
1 salt & cayenne, to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp basil leaves
1 tsp cumin seeds

2 oz vinegar
1 canola oil
4 oz cilantro leaves
1 each jalapeno
2 each green onions
Boil diced potatoes and cauliflower florets in water with salt,
cayenne, turmeric and 1 tbs canola oil. Remove cauliflower florets as
they will be done before the potatoes. The vegetables should be
cooked but firm. Grind ginger and garlic. If fresh ginger is not
available, use 1/2 tsp ginger powder. Finely chop the cilantro, green
onion and jalapeno. Mix slice onion with basil, binegar and olive
oil. Marinate 10-15 minutes. In a small wok on medium heat, add 1 tb
canola oil. When hot, add the cumin seeds. Fry until light brown. Add
the onions. Cook until opaque. Add ginger and garlic. Saut for a few
minutes. Add the potatoes, cauliflower and the diced tomato. If the
vegetables stick to the pan, add a little water to keep it moist.
Simmer until vegetables are done. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro,
lemon juice and sliced tomato before serving.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading
Be sceptical of advertizing that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the can or package. Many are only marginally reduced and in some instances still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are exactly the same.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, onions and welsh onion)
The onion family is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is very little scientific evidence obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought to help with antiinflammatory effect, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be a part of every diet system.
