Sweet and Smokey "El Pastor" Sauce//
2 cup pineapple chunks (Reserve 1 cup for later)
1/4 cup orange juice
1 clove garlic
2 arbol chilis (start with 1, and add the second after tasting)
4 sundried tomatoes (preferably not packed in oil)
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
Blend all ingredients until smooth (only 1 cup pineapple). This might read "spicy", but it does mellow out once you add it to the vegetable. It should have strong flavor!
1 large head of cauliflower, or romanesco. Don't be afraid of the funky ones if you can get them!
Core the veg, and slice it into manageable bites.
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and sautée until it starts to brown and soften. Add a pinch of salt. You can add a few tablespoons of water to help. You don't want the bites to be crunchy!
Add the sauce the your sauce to your sautee, and simmer covered for about 8 -10 minutes. Add remaining pineapple chunks and simmer for a few more minutes.
Taste, and adjust for salt and a little extra chili powder if needed.
With corn tortillas , avocado and cilantro.
