Gumbo on a rainy day

I cannot remember where I found this recipe. I know it was on one of the paleo sites that are out there. I was drawn to this one because of the interesting way that cauliflower is used.
Ingredients:
2 large chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1 lb sausage (I used hot-italian chicken) cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
olive oil to coat bottom of pan
1 whole onion, chopped
1 large bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes, undrained. Have you seen these fire roasted? I love them.1.5 cups chicken stock
1/2 tsp. thyme
1 T. parsley
1 tsp. chili powder
1 large head of cauliflower
2 cups shelled, deveined and cleaned shrimp
Salt and Pepper to taste

In a large skillet heat the olive oil and lightly cook the sausage and chicken over medium heat. Once golden, add onion, bell pepper and garlic and saute until onion is translucent.Transfer items from the frying pan into a large pot. Add diced tomatoes , chicken broth, thyme, parsley and chili powder and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes.
While that simmers place the cauliflower in a food processor and shred until it becomes the consistency of rice. Add cauliflower "rice" to the mixture and simmer until until soft.
Add shrimp the last couple of minutes.
Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
