Paleo Spanish Rice
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.
- 1/2 head cauliflower, 2 cups
- 1 Teaspoon salt
- 1/2 small yellow onion, finely chopped (1/4 cup)
- 1 1/2 Teaspoon Simply Organic dried oregano
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 3 Cups chicken broth
- 1 (15 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes, drained
- 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil (can use up to 1/4 cup)
Using one of your methods - rice cauliflower and set aside in a bowl. In a medium pot over medium heat add olive oil. Add in onions and sauté for 5 minutes. Add in garlic and let for 30 seconds then add cauliflower rice. Stir around gently using a wooden spoon. Pour in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add tomato. tomato paste, oregano, and salt. Cover and lower heat and cook 10-15 minutes.
