This chicken and chorizo cauliflower paella is an easy weeknight meal made in one skillet. Spain is famous for its paella dish which is typically made with rice, vegetables, chicken, chorizo and or seafood. In this recipe, I substituted cauliflower for the rice, making this a low carb meal. For protein, I used chicken and chorizo sausage, which is made of pork and is highly seasoned, adding a lot of flavour to this Spanish meal. Chorizo sausage is used mainly in Spanish and Mexican cuisine. 

For extra flavour and a little heat, I used spices such as paprika, saffron, bay leaf and cayenne pepper. Saffron, often used in Spanish recipes, is especially delicious in paella because of its intense flavour. And let us not forget the impressive health benefits, saffron is a powerful antioxidant. This cauliflower paella dish is gluten-free, low carb, paleo and keto friendly. Paella is often served with roasted peppers, fried pimientos or bread. What I love about this recipe, it is quick and easy to prepare, and more importantly, it is made with cauliflower and not rice making this popular dish healthier and lower in carbs

I am sorry you didn’t enjoy it. You can always increase the chicken and the sausage and reduce the mount of cauliflower.


Not that great to be honest. It’s okay, but I wouldn’t make it again. Also not sure about the amount of cauliflower. Seems like way too much
