Chorizo Rice with Fried Egg

This is one of my favorite breakfasts, but I enjoy it just as frequently for lunch and dinner. Chorizo and cauliflower ‘rice’ are sautéed together with flavorful veggies and topped with a fried egg for a protein-packed meal that provides energy for hours. If you like things spicy, consider adding some chili powder, cayenne powder, or paprika to the mix. When purchasing chorizo, make sure to read the ingredient list, as many types of store-bought chorizo contain non-Paleo ingredients. … Continue reading
