Paleo Dirty "Rice" Recipe — A Modern Mrs.
Spicy, savory and healthy, this dish is sure to please a crowd! Even L enjoyed it, despite her dislike for spicy foods. I forget how I stumbled upon this recipe, but I'm so glad I did because it's delectable! Dirty Rice is technically a side dish, but you could totally add some chicken or ground turkey and turn it into a main course. We didn't add any meat and still ate it as a main course, and it was surprisingly filling!

Considering this utilizes cauliflower, you won't get that starchy texture or flavor you're probably used to, but honestly, I didn't miss it. Riced cauliflower is very close to traditional rice, and it's leaps and bounds better for you. Cauliflower naturally detoxifies the body, is full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Omega 3's, and fiber. I'm finding more and more ways to use cauliflower, and each way is easy and delicious!

Paleo Dirty "Rice" Recipe

{Adapted from Elana's Pantry}


  • 3 cups Cauliflower, riced with your food processor
  • 1 cup White Onion, diced
  • 1 cup Mixed Pepper Strips
  • 1 cup Broccoli 
  • 2 tbs. Avocado Oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Cumin
  • 2 cups Chicken or Vegetable Stock

  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a skillet or medium-sized pot.
  2. Add onion, mixed pepper strips and broccoli.
  3. Saute until soft.
  4. Stir in riced cauliflower, adding your seasonings.
  5. Add the chicken or vegetable stock. Stir.
  6. Allow to simmer on medium-low heat, stirring frequently, for 30 minutes or until the liquid has cooked down.
  7. If necessary, drain excess liquid. {My liquid never cooked all the way down and needed to be drained.}
  8. Devour.
Note: If you want to double this recipe, I suggest starting off with the same amount of stock, and adding a little as/if needed. My cauliflower yielded more than three cups, so I adjusted the stock from the get-go, and had considerably more than needed.
