Mushroom and Goat Cheese “Risotto” (Grain-Free)

I don’t think I was ever a big rice person. Therefore, when I cut out most grains, rice was not one of those foods I craved.

Except when it came to risotto. I mean, come on, even the word “risotto” is fun to say (risotto, risotto, risotto… try saying that 10 times fast!)

Once at a restaurant, I had a goat cheese and mushroom risotto that was AMAZING. Like, is-it-possible-that-can-marry-this??? good. So, I’ve recently tired to recreate this with a cauliflower rice version. And voila! Love is in the air again!

    • Thank you! Making cauliflower rice is super easy! Just cut cauliflower into florets, throw it in a food processor or blender, and pulse until it resembles rice 🙂
