This low carb version of the classic Paella also gluten free! It is just as flavorful and delicious without all of the carbs!
Gluten free Paella- low carb version is naturally gluten free and delicious! Paella is traditionally made with rice, seafood, chicken and sausage in a delicious tomato sauce. Saffron sets it apart and is floral. This one pot meal cooks quickly and you can easily adjust the amounts of ingredients to feed 2 – 50 people. You just need a bigger pan!
I love cooking Paella because it fills my house with a delicious aroma and that makes me happy! I use cauliflower rice for this version to keep it low carb and keto, but you can add paella rice if you like. It will take longer to cook and more liquid so prepare to adjust for that!
You can be adventurous with your ingredients. I have seen paella with muscles, squid, octopus etc. I keep this simple with shrimp, chorizo, and chicken because frankly, my family is a little cautious of squid, muscles, and octopus. If I had my choice to eat it on my own, I would probably add some fun stuff! I recently tried grilled octopus and loved it! I expected it to be chewy but it was perfect! So I would love to put that in next time!
Don’t be afraid to experiment with food and try new things!
This beautiful seafood dish is fun to make and delicious to eat!
