1 medium onion, thinly sliced
5 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt, to taste

3. Add cauliflower and water saved from steaming. Toss and continue cooking over medium-hi heat. Add oregano and salt, to taste. After 2 or 3 minutes, add apple cider vinegar and continue stirring. Cauliflower should be sitting in abundant dark liquid.
