So I made risotto. However, instead of using arborio rice, I used cauliflower! Yep, and it actually turned out pretty good. Also, it sure was quicker, and has the added benefit of being yet another way to sneak vegies into the kids.
All you need to do, is roughly chop a whole cauliflower, add it to the food processor, and process until the cauliflower 'grains' resemble rice! Then substitute for rice in your favourite risotto recipe. I'm not going to put a recipe here, however simply dice one onion, saute gently with some crushed garlic, add the cauliflower and cook gently until the cauliflower is taking on some colour. Deglaze the pan with a glass of white wine (drink the rest), and add ladlefuls of stock, until your required consistency is reached. We went for thyme and roasted mushroom cauliflower risotto, finished off, of course, with copious amounts of parmesan, butter, and a little cream. Delicious!
