1 medium cauliflower cut into small florets
4 carrots 1/8 inch rounds
1 medium potato medium dice

Add cauliflower, carrots, potato, and green beans to the pan and cook 5-8 minutes
at a simmer.
Add coconut/cashew milk and reduce heat slightly, cooking uncovered for 15-20 minutes,
until the vegetables are tender and the sauce has reduced by about 1/4. If sauce is reducing too much, add coconut milk or water to keep from burning.
