Ok, more about this epic paleo paella recipe. If you’ve never heard of paella, it’s a Spanish dish made with rice, veggies, meat and seafood with delicious saffron. It’s all kinds of amazing and actually really easy to make.

Our paleo version obviously does not include rice, because it’s grain free! We used cauli rice (grated cauliflower) and we think it’s just as yummy! It’s the perfect dinner recipe if you’re trying to lower your carbs. 

It’s also the perfect dinner recipe for your next gathering. Cook it in a big shallow fry pan, place on the table and serve straight from the pan… all your dinner guests will love you forever and ever!
