Cajun Cauliflower Dirty “Rice”

Jump to recipe

For all the Cajuns out there, you know how delicious a big bowl of dirty rice is. For those (probably many) who are thinking… “what the heck is dirty rice?”, I’ve got you covered.

Dirty rice is a Southern side dish made from spicy ground beef, onions, bell peppers, garlic, broth, and rice. You cook the veggies down, brown and season the beef, and add cooked rice to the mixture. The seasoned ground beef colors the rice, creating our “dirty” white rice.

Today, we’re lightening up this traditional recipe and using CAULIFLOWER instead of white rice. And honestly y’all, it’s just as delicious. Can’t wait for you to try it out.
