Cauliflower low-carb risotto with spinach and goat's cheese

This low-carb cauliflower risotto with spinach and French goat's cheese is an excellent choice for a quick and easy lunch. In fact you may even enjoy it for dinner! You'll find that each spoonful is packed with flavour and comforting creaminess ... yum!

Serves Four
1 2⁄3 lbs (750g) cauliflower
1¾ cups (425ml) heavy (double) whipping cream
2 oz. (50g) butter
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon onion powder
salt and ground black pepper, to taste
3 oz. (75g) parmesan cheese
3 oz. (75g) fresh spinach
5 oz. (150g) goat cheese
4 tablespoons pecans
2 tablespoons olive oil

Just like with rice, some prefer a softer texture and some like it al dente. Be sure to test the cauliflower mixture frequently and get it off the heat before it becomes too mushy.


Yes, for a vibrantly green dish, try broccoli instead of cauliflower. Pay extra attention to taking it off the heat before it turns into a mash.

Storing the dish

This dish keeps for 2-3 days in the refrigerator and reheats great in the microwave. Perfect for a lunchbox.

All the best Jan

My father would mash cauliflower and broccoli together in the same dish. We thought he was crazy when we saw the pale green, lumpy glob. It was good. I suppose he was ahead of his time.

Since I've recently discovered cauliflower rice, this sounds like a wonderful way to use it! YUM!

I'm not keen on the texture of the rice in risotto so it's something I never make.

I'm not sure how I missed this, but this is going in my file. I appreciate the tip, too, since I am NOT a big fan of al dente. Thanks for this.
