These days, cauliflower rice is the MVP at Hungryland. And in this mixed paella dish, it reigns supreme once again!

Prep: 35 minutes
Cook: 40 minutes

4 cups roughly chopped cauliflower (about 1 medium head)
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. ground thyme
8 oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
1/4 tsp. + 1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper
1 cup sliced onion
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 tbsp. chopped garlic
2 cups chopped tomatoes
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 cup frozen peas
3/4 cup fat-free chicken broth
2 bay leaves
8 oz. raw shrimp, peeled, tails removed, deveined
6 oz. raw scallops, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 tbsp. lemon juice
Optional seasonings: additional salt and black pepper

Pulse cauliflower in a blender until reduced to rice-like pieces, working in batches as needed. Transfer to a bowl. Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. turmeric, 1/2 tsp. paprika, and 1/8 tsp. thyme. Mix well.  

Bring a large pot (with a lid) sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Season chicken with 1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper. Cook for about 4 minutes per side, until cooked through. Transfer chicken to a cutting board.

Remove pot from heat; clean, if needed. Re-spray, and bring to medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Cook and stir until veggies have softened, about 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes, cayenne pepper, and remaining 1/2 tsp. turmeric, 1/2 tsp. paprika, 1/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper, and 1/8 tsp. thyme. Cook and stir until tomatoes have softened, about 3 minutes.

Add cauliflower, peas, broth, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil.

Reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, roughly chop chicken.

Add shrimp, scallops, and chopped chicken. Cook and stir until seafood is fully cooked, about 5 minutes.

Add lemon juice and stir. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Remove bay leaves.
