This is my first recipe with cauliflower rice.  Since cauliflower was not my favorite vegetable, I was a bit anxious at first.  But then, once that anxiety was over, I was totally fine.

Unlike One-Pot Chinese Salt and Pepper Shrimp Cauliflower Rice, this one uses fresh pre-packaged Cauliflower rice.  Some called them as "Cauliflower Pearls" which I think that is the most appropriate name because of their size. (Click here to find out the differences between pre-packaged fresh and frozen cauliflower rice)

I did say that anxiety was one of the pushes to put this recipe together.  The other reason how this came along because I was thinking of comfort food. 

One of my favorite comfort food is sausage gravy.  But the majority of my family is not a big fan of it.  I myself like purely just sausage gravy without biscuits.  (I know, I know it sounds like we are a group of weird people.)  Anyway, that was how this low carb cauliflower rice recipe fell into place.  It just gives traditional comfort food a healthy twist.
