While I am not "Keto" I do enjoy finding ways to get more veggies in my family's diet--using Cauliflower Rice is one of the many ways you can easily do this and reduce your carb intake as well! Here is another of my "Healthy Reinventions" of a favorite!
Trim the base of the cauliflower, and cut the florets and stems into 1 1/2-inch (3.75cm) chunks. Place about half the cauliflower into the bowl of a food processor and pulse, chopping to the size of rice. Scrape into a bowl and repeat with the remaining cauliflower. Reserve. (1 bag of Frozen Cauliflower Rice works well also)
In a large saute pan, drizzle 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Place over medium-high heat for a few seconds before adding the cauliflower, pepper and onion. Stir to saute for about 2 minutes. Add the wine, saffron and paprika and stir, cover the pan and bring to a boil, cook for about 6 minutes to soften the vegetables. Remove the lid and stir in the edamame, cooking until the pan is nearly dry. Keep warm, and stir in the parsley just before serving.
For the shrimp, place a large saute pan over high heat and drizzle with the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil. Place the shrimp in the pan and when they start to sizzle, lower the heat to medium. Cook the shrimp for about 2–3 minutes per side, turning with a spatula.
Serve 1 cup paella topped with 4 cooked shrimp.
