Paleo Dirty Cauliflower ‘Rice’ Recipe

Paleo Dirty Cauliflower ‘Rice’

For those avoiding starchy high-carb foods such as white rice, cauliflower “rice” is a wonderful alternative that is highly nutritious.

Do you like your rice dirty? I turned my dirty rice into a vegetarian Paleo side dish, by leaving out the giblets, which while quite nutritious are not my favorite thing. My rice gets its dirty color from an abundance of antioxidant rich spices.
