Well, living in Louisiana means being surrounded by some amazing delicious foods. One thing I have absolutely loved ever since I tried it the very first time was jambalaya. When it is made right it is absolutely out of this world delicious.

Making this dish into a keto, low-carb version was really quite easy. After all cauliflower had already replaced rice in all of my other dishes so I figured it would work in my jambalaya too! Well, I served it up without telling anyone what I had done and it was a straight home run hit! 

Now we can continue to have our jambalaya but without packing on the pounds!
