Cauliflower Rice Risotto
Do you only have risotto at a restaurant because you love risotto but you don’t love standing by the stove and stirring constantly until it’s done?
Now risotto has become easier to make and has even been given a healthy facelift! And it’s all due to cauliflower, the go-to vegetable that transforms recipes into healthier, and oh so delicious, options.
Let’s ditch the high starch classic Arborio rice for cauliflower rice, shall we?
Cauliflower rice is readily available now in your produce and freezer sections of your grocery store. It’s also so easy to make with a box grater or food processor or you could even finely chop it with a knife! Easy peasy any way you choose.

Parmesan, Cheddar and Asiago cheeses team up to create a flavorful silky three cheese sauce.
Our risotto recipe takes the time-consuming stirring out of risotto, cauliflower rice makes it healthier and three cheeses make a silky sauce.
I’d say it’s time to make Three Cheese Cauliflower Risotto, the healthier, easier to make, less time consuming risotto! Agree?
