Looking for a keto-friendly lunch or dinner with a little bit of spice? Then this chorizo, spinach, and cauliflower rice bowl should go down a treat. It’s packed full of flavors, is low in carbs, and only takes 15 minutes to cook.
The star of this dish is the chorizo sausage which is a Spanish spicy sausage that is packed full of protein and flavor. When cooked the oils in the sausage are heated up and provide lots of oily goodness to cook the rest of the dish in.

To make this tasty dish, start by making your cauliflower rice. This can be done by blitzing up raw cauliflower into rice-sized pieces.
