Paleo Spanish Rice

Paleo Spanish Rice
Staff Writer

We have Mexican nights every couple of weeks and I marinated some flank steak and prepared all of the fixings (avocado, salsa, shredded lettuce) and wanted to make some Paleo Spanish Rice. We really enjoyed this and I never told the family it was cauliflower until the bowl was empty! Love paleo recipes!!

***How to rice cauliflower: Cut the head of cauliflower in 1/2 (put 1/2 away). Then cut in half again and cut out the core. You can then either feed florets through the shredder attachment to your food processor, or use a box grater to achieve a rice-like consistency.
