I’m sure you’ve heard of cauliflower rice, but what about mushroom and jalapeño cauli risotto? This keto friendly dish is a perfect way to enjoy comfort food without the guilt. Get ready to impress your friends with this creamy side dish that takes 40 minutes to make. While being a wonderful side dish option, this recipe is hearty enough to be a standalone meal.
The cauliflower rice is low in carbs, high in protein and fiber, and contains many micronutrients. The key is really making sure that your cauliflower rice isn’t overcooked because then it will get mushy when mixed together with other ingredients into the risotto. It should be fluffy before adding in any liquids. Allow the cauli rice to breathe while getting tender.
Jalapeño adds spice to this low carb dish. If you’re not into spicy food, then opt for a red bell pepper instead – the choice is yours!
Mushrooms are one of our favorite vegetables because they have so much flavor on their own without needing any seasoning. You can make them as subtle or complex as your taste buds prefer, but it’s always nice when mushrooms get some love from other ingredients. The way the mushroom is highlighted in this dish is truly delicious.
You can opt to make it vegan by using vegetable broth and substitute the cream (or omit entirely).
