    Spread tomatoes and red onion on a lightly oiled sheet tray, place directly on the grill grate and cook for 30 minutes. Remove from grill and rest at room temperature until cool enough to handle. Cut each into small dice and set aside in separate bowls.

    Put a large pan on the Traeger and add the coconut oil. When the oil is melted and hot, add the diced red onion and garlic. Stir and cook for 60 seconds, or until fragrant. Stir in the spices and cook for 30 seconds more to toast the spices.
