Recipe: Cauliflower “Rice” Risotto with Mushroom and Asparagus

As much as I love rice (jasmine rice is my FAVE), lately I’ve been trying to cut back on carbs and eat healthier. I recently discovered cauliflower “rice” and I’m obsessed — it’s so versatile and you can add it to anything!

One of my favorite things to make with cauliflower rice is a risotto with mushroom and asparagus. It’s a quick dish to whip up when you’re crunched for time, and not to mention, it’s SO good!

To start, I chop up my mushrooms and asparagus into small pieces, and then sautée them with a bit of olive oil. Then I add in the cauliflower rice (it cooks pretty fast) and season with salt, pepper, and basil. To top it off, I add a little grated gruyere to give it that “risotto” taste and feel. The cheese melts pretty quickly so it’s easy to mix in with the rest of the dish.
