Cajun Cauliflower Rice with Sausage

Every now and then I crave spicy food and this dirty rice made with riced cauliflower and sausage fulfills those cravings. I got this recipe idea from my cajun sausage with pasta recipe but wanted to make this one low carb. Using cauliflower rice in place of starchy carbs is a great idea to help reduce your carb intake. This meal comes in at 4 net carbs per serving and is very filling. Enjoy!

How Many Carbs does Cauliflower Rice have?

Surprisingly, cauliflower rice is lower in carbs than you think. It has about 3 net carbs per one cup serving. That is a huge savings of carbs for the day compared to regular rice and a great substitute when following a low carb diet.

Other Variations to Try

  • Replace the sausage with grilled garlic shrimp.
  • Serve over zoodles instead of cauliflower rice.
  • Use ground beef instead of sausage.
  • Add chicken with sausage.
  • Use regular sausage and leave out the cajun seasoning to make it not spicy.
