Goat Cheese and Mushroom Cauliflower Risotto Recipe

recipes vegetables & sides Jun 26, 2019

Yes, it’s 100% possible to make creamy, rich, delicious ‘risotto’ that’s low-carb AND suitable for those who are sensitive to cow’s milk dairy.

How?? Well, there are 2 main ingredients that make it happen. The first is pretty obvious - cauliflower rice. These days cauliflower can replace pretty much everything. 😆

The second ingredient isn’t so obvious. But, it’s definitely the star of this dish…and that is Goat Milk Kefir! It gives this dish a super creamy consistency and subtly tart flavor, different than anything you’ve ever had before. Try it out and thank me later! 😎
