This is the delicious recipe I promised you on the previous post, where I showed you how to make cauliflower rice. I couldn’t live without regular rice though, but I love this risotto and you should give it a try, especially if you want to eat more veggies.
The flavor and the texture are quite similar to rice, although obviously is not exactly the same. If you’re not a big fan of cauliflower, you also should try this recipe because it doesn’t have an intense cauliflower taste.
Sometimes I eat this risotto with some bread (rye bread is usually my choice), but you can also add some sautéed tofu or tempeh or even some cooked rice to make it more satiating.
- Use your favorite veggies, spices or herbs.
- Add 1/4 cup of wine and 1/4 of plant milk, instead of 1/2 cup of milk, if you want.
- If you can’t find nutritional yeast, you can use some brewer’s yeast instead, a vegan cheese of your choice, or just remove this ingredient.
