My husband thought it needed more spice so he added hot sauce I thought it was wonderful as is.

for Paleo, I'd leave out the salt, and serve over cauliflower or just eat it straight.

My teenage son who NEVER eats veggies, ate this. That is truly a miracle! I also would use a cauliflower faux rice.
