Dirty Cauliflower Rice
This Paleo version of dirty cauliflower rice is spicy, rich, filling and incredibly tasty. While most rice is usually relegated to the side of the plate as an afterthought, this rice is daring enough to be the main event. You can serve it in a bowl all by itself and no one will be complaining about having “only” a side dish for dinner. Instead, everyone will be busy devouring their bowl, gulping some water to ward off the heat from the jalapeno and quickly heading back to the stove to fill up on seconds.

- Heat a large pan over medium heat. Once hot, add in the sausage.
- Cook the sausage until browned and then remove it from the pan and set aside.
- Add in the onions to the same pan, cook a few minutes until the onions become translucent. Be sure to scrape up the sausage bits from the bottom of the pan.
- Add the mushrooms and garlic. Cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.
