KETO CAULIFLOWER JAMBALAYA
Celebrate Fat Tuesday with Cauliflower Jambalaya
Mardi Gras! Woot! Okay, I’ll admit that eating the Cauliflower Jambalaya after taking pictures of it today made me long for a Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane. The Mother, Sam, our friend Jamie, and I had an awesome time in New Orleans while I was there to compete in the Chef’s Taste Challenge. We ate a lot of oysters, crawfish, turkey necks, and, of course, jambalaya.
For Fat Tuesday, one of my regular catering customers requested jambalaya. Since I knew Sam would be jealous of them, I made this Cauliflower Jambalaya for her. Even though we all know how she feels about cauliflower rice, she approves of this low carb, gluten free, and sugar free recipe. She also says that she’s going to work on a keto hurricane for us to enjoy with it.

Celebrating Mardi Gras and eating keto, too? Make this for tonight’s dinner with some Toasted Mug Bread and a salad. There’s plenty of time to whip it up. Warning: It may make you want to earn some beads. Laissez les bons temps rouler a la KetoLuxe.
