Asian Beef & Broccoli with Paleo Rice

Today I am sharing another one of my favorite Paleo carb substitutes, Paleo rice which is basically seasoned, ground cauliflower.  Might sound gross but you will be surprised at how tasty it is!  Believe it or not, you can also use cauliflower to make faux mashed potatoes and pizza crust (will share another time).  Serve rice with the Asian Beef & Broccoli recipe below or my Orange Chicken for a healthy Paleo alternative to Chinese take out!
