Dirty Cajun Cauliflower “Rice”

Cajun food is PACKED full of amazing flavor thanks to all of the delicious seasonings that go into each dish.  During the Whole 30 Challenge, seasonings are your best friend.  They make each healthy dish flavorful and delicious, while remaining whole.  Give this recipe a try and you’ll see what I mean.  It is AMAZING. (We highly recommend serving with roasted okra and our Blackened Red Snapper!)
