Grain-Free "Risotto" and a Giveaway

I love, love, love One Frugal Foodie's recipe for Cauliflower "Risotto."  It is seriously so easy to make--less fussy and much quicker to pull together than the real thing while still mimicking its taste and texture.  Whenever I have cauliflower on hand, this is what I usually end up making with it.  Whenever I have cauliflower on hand, this is what I usually end up making with it.  I feel a little bad when I inevitability abandon my self control by giving into the addictive nature of this dish, but then make myself feel better for eating most of it in one sitting by reminding myself that 1) my nonstick pan makes the use of oil unnecessary and 2) a bunch of cauliflower is a much healthier alternative to the arborio rice it replaces.  During stressful and busy weeks like the one I'm experience right now, this type of simple, reliable, quick-and-delicious recipe is a blessing.  I spiced up the recipe a bit by adding roasted garlic and red pepper flakes.
Speaking of One Frugal Foodie, there is an awesome, four-cookbook (all vegan!) giveaway going on over there.  Head over and check it out, and while you're at it, enjoy the other tasty-looking recipes there.

  1. Thanks for blogging about the giveaway, and wow, I'm so glad you like the recipe! That is one of the only ways I can get my husband to eat cauliflower.

    You win the "cutest blog name" for me this week too :)

  2. Yum! I've used cauliflower for raw "rice" but never for a cooked risotto. I must give this a try!
