Cauliflower Rice Mushroom Risotto…

Today I was looking thru pinterest, cause I heard about Cauliflower Rice. Which upon looking at it, I realized it was just Cauliflower put thru the food processor to look like rice and it can be cooked like rice. Good thing I like Cauliflower, as I have made fake mashed potatoes with it before. So I am looking at recipes and one just struck me, mushroom risotto. I looked at the recipe and realized I had almost all the ingredients and was like, ok this will go great with Salmon. I changed the recipe a bit so this is my creation.
It was very delicious.

Serves 4

Ingridients:
1 head of cauliflower, cut and chopped. (I used my food processor, but you can use a cheese grater what I hear.)
1 cup low sodium chicken stock
3tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 Onion
1 glove garlic
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 cups spinach

In a pot heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and then add the garlic and the onion. Sautee for a minute, then add the grated Cauliflower. Cook for a couple of minutes and then add the Chicken stock and simmer, don’t put a lit on. for about 15mins.
In a frying pan, heat the rest of the oil and sautee the mushrooms and spinach. Then add to the Cauliflower and mix. And Voila fake low carb Risotto.

Oven Roasted Parmesan Cauliflower

I am working with a trainer now and I am not eating carbs in the evening, actually trying to avoid complex carbs almost all together. So we went to Costco yesterday and I love Cauliflower, so we bought a bag of florets.

I cut them into 1/2″ pieces today about 6 cups, then tossed 1/4 cup of Olive Oil and 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese and some Lemon Garlic seasoning from Velata that I had bought this weekend and tossed them. Then spread them on a cookies sheet and put them in a preheated to F350 oven and roasted them for 30mins.

It was the most delicious Cauliflower I ever had.
