  • Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Add the garlic, oregano and red pepper flakes, and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Avoid burning the garlic.
  • Stir in the diced tomatoes, kalamata olives and capers. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the cauliflower, stirring to coat and cover. Cook until the cauliflower is tender, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.
  • Stir in the parsley, season with salt and pepper if necessary and serve.
