Artichoke and Chicken Sausage Cauliflower "Paella"

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"I just love a great one-pot dish that makes everyone go wow. I prepare, cook, and serve right out of my beautiful braising pan. You can also use your paella pan. Thank you to D&D Market (the new Wethersfield, CT store) for the fresh ingredients to make this great recipe. Using cauliflower as your rice makes this dish a perfect paleo side dish or main course! This is also a stove-to-table dish without any mess in 30 minutes!"

  1. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor; pulse into grains the size of rice.
  2. Combine hot water and saffron threads in a small bowl; let stand for 3 minutes to infuse.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a paella pan over medium heat. Add sausage; cook and stir until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in zucchini and onion; cook for 3 minutes. Add saffron infusion, carrot, garlic, and cayenne pepper; cook for 1 minute.
  4. Stir cauliflower "rice" and artichokes into the pan. Cook and stir until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Pour in stock; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until most of the stock is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Stir in snow peas; simmer until all stock is absorbed, 3 to 5 minutes more.
  5. Remove paella from the heat and drizzle remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil on top.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute vegetable stock for the chicken stock if desired.
  • Use mild or hot sausage as preferred.

I added a little shrimp and red peppers. it was great!

This was fun to make for something different. For extra flavor, I added paprika, oregano, and lemon juice. Quite yummy!
