Cauliflower Risotto

Cauliflower Risotto

Ok so I may be slightly obsessed with cauliflower but this risotto tastes amazing and is a great alternative to rice for those limiting their carbs or grains. Cauliflower is part of the cruciferous family, therefore has powerful health benefits including detox support, antioxidant protection and anti-inflammatory benefits – rad.

What you’ll need:

  • Olive oil
  • 2-3 Cloves of Garlic
  • 1 Brown Onion
  • Organic Chicken Thigh Fillets
  • 1 head of Cauliflower Grated
  • 1L of Stock
  • Pumpkin
  • Rainbow Chard (or can substitute for spinach)
  • Goats Cheese (optional)
  • Salt, Pepper and Chilli to taste

Method:

  • Fry olive oil, garlic and onion in a deep pan until brown, add chicken and fry until cooked
  • Add grated raw cauliflower and stir until excess oil has been absorbed
  • Slowly add the stock, stirring gently until stock is absorbed before adding more. You might not need the full litre – avoid turning this dish into mash
  • Season with the chilli, salt and pepper and whatever herbs you have at hand
  • Add steamed pumpkin, raw chard and goats cheese
  • Fry on low heat until you’re happy with the consistency

Oh happy days…..
