    Mushrooms & Spinach Cauliflower Risotto (Paleo, Whole30)


    A while ago, I saw a recipe that uses cauliflower instead of arborio rice to make risotto. Not only is it healthier, it is also so much easier to make! No need to stand at the stove to stir and stir, no need to ladle in stock bit by bit, and no need to fuss about getting the rice to the perfect consistency. But you’d still end up with a delicious plate of ‘risotto’ and a low-carb one too! 

    The only difference is that you will not get that creamy texture of risotto. Not with this recipe because it is vegan and whole30 compliant. I’m sure it can be achieved by subbing stock with heavy cream and grated parmesan cheese. That would make it more of a Keto meal, and a really yummy one too! 🙂
