Cauliflower Rice Risotto with Mushrooms : Low Carb : Paleo : Vegan


This recipe suggestion from Lisa at Low Carb Yum is for a low carb and paleo friendly cauliflower rice risotto with mushrooms and makes a great low carb rice substitute. It’s a simple side dish for any low carb/keto meal and is easy to prepare. It goes well with any meat, chicken, a baked fish fillet or other vegetable(s) … so many possibilities.

It’s also a vegan friendly dish since there’s no animal based ingredients. So you may want to serve it with a plant based chicken or beef substitute low in carbs. Or, serve it with a side of asparagus or collard greens.You can also reheat any leftovers, and serve with a small side salad, it makes a tasty lunch.  

Ingredients
Serves Six
2 tablespoons butter flavoured coconut oil
2 cloves garlic finely chopped or minced
1 head cauliflower, riced
4 ounces (100g) mushrooms chopped
1/2 cup (120g) coconut cream
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
fresh parsley for garnish

Method
1. Over medium high heat, melt coconut oil in a large skillet. Then add garlic and cook until fragrant and slightly golden.
2. Add mushrooms and sautée until tender and lightly browned, about 4-5 minutes.
3. Add in the riced cauliflower and stir until well blended with the mushrooms.
4. Stir in the coconut cream and nutritional yeast until heated. Remove from heat, garnish with parsley and serve.
Notes
Butter, ghee, or cooking oil can be used in place of the butter flavoured coconut oil.
Heavy cream can be used instead of the coconut cream and cheese can be used in place of the nutritional yeast if dairy-free and vegan is not needed.

This low carb side dish can easily be made into a meal by adding in meat like beef, chicken, pork, or shrimp. Vegan meat substitutes work well too.
