Hey friends! Today I am here with a new recipe. This chorizo spinach cauliflower bake is super tasty, super easy, low carb and Whole30 compliant. I mean, what more could you really ask for in a recipe? 🙂 When I did a round of Whole30 back in January, one of the things I struggled with was finding compliant options for chorizo and other breakfast sausages. I spotted the Mulay's brand at my local grocery store and the rest is history!

One of the things that surprised me when I was preparing for my Whole30 was how many unnecessary fillers are put into our meat. In addition to the fillers, sugar was in almost all chorizo and breakfast sausages I found. I spent so much time in grocery stores searching for a cleaner meat. I had to do some serious digging and label reading and even then, I often came up empty-handed. When I spotted this brand at my local health food store, I seriously let out a little yelp of excitement. Finally! A meat I could use! (You can check where Mulay's Sausage is sold near you here). They make all their sausages with minimal fresh ingredients and I am so on board with that! Mulay's has tons of options in the sugar-free meat department. Besides the chorizo used in this recipe (my personal favorite), there is also mild and spicy Italian sausage, brats and breakfast sausage. If you are doing a round of Whole30 or you are just avoiding added sugars in general, these are a life saver! I also just think it's so awesome to see companies make food with just real ingredients and no artificial junk. The food industry is shifting and it's so nice that healthier options are becoming more readily available!
The taste of chorizo is the perfect complement to the subtle flavor of the cauliflower in this recipe. It gives just the right amount of spice and flavor to an otherwise simple meal. I love using this chorizo in some of my favorite recipes like breakfast frittatas, casseroles and meal prep muffins. Each time I use the chorizo in place of just ground beef my husband comments how good it is. Clearly, we are a little obsessed in my house. But once you try it, I think you will be too. You've been warned! 😉Print
