nonstick cooking spray
8 ounces lean andouille sausage, cut into 1/2" chunks, then cut into quarters
8 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced thin
12 ounces raw shrimp, large size, shelled & deveined
3/4 C green bell peppers, 1/2 inch chop
3/4 C celery, sliced thin
1/2 C scallion whites ( set aside a few green tops cut on a bias for garnish)
1 C fresh okra, sliced
1 15 ounce can diced and fire roasted tomatoes
2 C prepared cauliflower rice
Prep the meat and the veggies.
Spray a large frying pan with nonstick spray and put over medium high heat.
Add sausage and cook for 1 minute
Add chicken and cook for 5-7 minutes, until meat is opaque and slightly browned.
Add the shrimp and saute for 2 minutes until pink.
Pour the meat into a bowl and set aside to keep warm.
Place the frying pan back over the heat and add the oil.
Add peppers, celery and scallion whites and saute for 3-4 minutes until crisp-tender.
Add the okra and saute for 1 minute more.
Pour the tomatoes into the pan and sprinkle with the Kickin' Cajun and Garlic Gusto Seasoning. Stir to combine.
Bring liquid to a simmer and let cook for 2 minutes. Add the meat back into the pan and stir to combine. Cook for 5 minutes more, reducing the liquid by half.
While simmering, heat the cauliflower rice. Season with Dash of Desperation Seasoning for best flavor!
Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and serve over 1/2 C of prepared cauliflower rice sprinkled with a few scallion greens for garnish. Enjoy!
