No rice? No grains? No problem! I’ve got a solution for your spicy southern cravings. This dish was incredibly easy, low carb, gluten/sugar free and just plain delish!
Spicy Paleo Jambalaya (for one)
1/4 head of cauliflower
1 Applegate Cajun sausage link
2 oz shrimp
2 T chopped onion
1 T Coconut oil
Chop off the stems of your cauliflower. If you’re making this recipe for the whole family, use the whole head of cauliflower, it can serve 4-6 people depending on how much you use. I used the whole head and am saving the rest for other meals this week. After chopping off the stems, place the cauliflower in a food processor or magic bullet and pulse until the cauliflower is the size of rice. Set aside your “rice” and throw your onions in a skillet, on medium-high, with the coconut oil and saute them until translucent. Toss in your sliced sausage link, shrimp (I’m assuming you know it needs to be thawed) and as much of the seasonings as you want. I never measure mine; I just put in a generous amount of each. Let the meat and onions sizzle for a few minutes; add more coconut oil if necessary. When the meat is done, add your cauliflower rice to the skillet and let it heat up and soften for just a few minutes. Feel free to add any and all vegetable to this dish! I bet some steamed carrots and broccoli would be outta this world.
Sorry, couldn’t help myself. That commercial always gets stuck in my head.
