Risotto is such a rich, decadent food. I mean, super creamy rice – what’s not to love? Well, I don’t love eating a giant bowl of rice. Don’t get me wrong, I eat white rice from time to time, especially if I’ve worked out that day. But a healthier option is definitely subbing cauliflower for the rice. And it actually tastes pretty amazing.

  • 4 cups cauliflower riced (using food processor or grater)
  • 4 large mushrooms sliced
  • 1 leek sliced
  • 3/4 cup grape tomatoes halved
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup raw & grass-fed cream or coconut cream the thick part at the top
  • salt and pepper


  • Melt the butter over medium to medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and sauté. Add the leeks. Once the leeks have softened, add the tomatoes. 
  • Then add the cauliflower rice. Let it cook until tender but not mushy. Add the cream.


Button Mushrooms or Portobello work really well here.
