Dirty Rice is a Creole or Cajun dish that combines white rice with onions, green pepper, sausage or ground beef, and chicken livers, and it’s a wonderful spicy rice dish that’s loaded with flavor. So let me start out by saying that of course this Low-Carb Spicy Cauliflower Dirty Rice isn’t authentic Louisiana Dirty rice because it uses frozen cauliflower rice instead of rice. I also used my favorite Turkey Italian Sausage and didn’t use chicken livers, although I do love them and might add some next time.
But the flavors and the idea behind my Low-Carb Spicy Cauliflower Dirty Rice definitely will remind you of Louisiana Dirty Rice! I made this with Jake and Kara on a day when it was really dark outside and I had a miserable time trying to get good photos. And I was thinking I’d make it again and try to improve the pictures, but then this morning I pulled the leftovers out of the fridge, heated it up, took one bite, and decided I needed to share the recipe right away! And this would probably be a photography challenge even on a day when the light was much better, so I hope you can overlook the fact that this isn’t overly photogenic and think about the combination of flavors!
And if you like the idea behind this dish but aren’t a cauliflower rice fan (or don’t care about the carbs,) you might enjoy Slow Cooker Spicy Brown Rice with Sausage and Peppers. That recipe has very similar flavors to this one, with an easy preparation method where the rice is cooked in the slow cooker.
