Take Italian sausage. Place it over cauliflower rice. And you have this easy, quick, delicious Paleo recipe!
You've had cauliflower rice before, haven't you? If not, you must try it. It's a great alternative to regular rice if you happen to be avoiding grains or looking to reduce your carb intake.
Or if you're in the paleo crowd... which we try to be most of the time. "Try" being the key word. I try to keep one foot in the circle while the other is off searching for ice cream or tacos with actual tortillas. That one foot in the paleo circle keeps me from straying too far, though, much to the delight of my jeans.
So, cauliflower rice is basically cauliflower chopped up into itty bitty pieces and cooked. This particular version is packed with basil pesto and topped with Italian sausage and some sweet Italian relish. Another version of Cauli-rice is the Mexican Chicken and "Rice" recipe I posted a while back, and I even tried it out on my parents while I was visiting.
Being the sneaky child that I was (and still am) I told my meat-and-potatoes dad it was a "special kind of rice" so he would eat it. He knows I eat "weird" things, like Indian food. And green vegetables. He just figured it was another one of my strange food choices.
But he ate it -- two big helpings of it, in fact. It's clear that although he's skeptical of my food choices, he trusts me. That means a lot.
