Goat Cheese and Mushroom Cauliflower Risotto RecipeJun 26, 2019
Yes, it’s 100% possible to make creamy, rich, delicious ‘risotto’ that’s low-carb AND suitable for those who are sensitive to cow’s milk dairy.
How?? Well, there are 2 main ingredients that make it happen. The first is pretty obvious - cauliflower rice. These days cauliflower can replace pretty much everything. 😆
The second ingredient isn’t so obvious. But, it’s definitely the star of this dish…and that is Goat Milk Kefir! It gives this dish a super creamy consistency and subtly tart flavor, different than anything you’ve ever had before. Try it out and thank me later! 😎
