My husband gave this a big thumbs up! It's basically my regular jambalaya recipe with cauliflower instead of rice. My son couldn't taste the difference, but he did say that the texture was slightly different than real rice. The carb count is pretty high for this dish, but if you deduct the fiber, it's not so bad and most of the carbs come from very good veggies. Click the photo to see a close-up.
