  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 thyme sprigs

  1. Cut the cabbage, carrot, onion and bell pepper into julienne. Make sure that they are not too thin. Clean them well.
  2. In a big pot, add the coconut oil with the garlic clove minced, thyme, and the scotch bonnet cut into tiny pieces. Sautee on medium heat to release the flavors into the oil.
