Cauliflower Mushroom Risotto

One thing you really miss when you are on a restricted diet is rice and pasta dishes!.....So what do you do?....Well you try and recreate your favorite dishes with things you can have...That is what I did here, This "risotto" is actually riced cauliflower which can be used for so many things......I used mushrooms  (I wanted to use fresh, but only had canned on hand)in this recipe but you can add whatever you like, maybe peas or asparagus. And I used regular milk, but you could use heavy cream or even almond milk.....This recipe is very flexible....You can use it as a side dish or even add some grilled shrimp or chicken for a meal...I will show you what I did.....Here we go......Enjoy!
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons butter
1 onion diced
1/2 cup mushrooms (your choice) or canned
2 cloves garlic minced
1 cauliflower riced
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup grated parmesan
salt and pepper
1. Rice your cauliflower and set aside
2. add olive oil and butter to fry pan then add onion and saute until translucent, add mushrooms
3. add garlic and stir and then add the cauliflower
4. add half of the chicken broth and cook for 6-8 minutes stirring
5. then add the milk and the rest of the broth and continue stirring until liquid is absorbed
6. continue to cook until cauliflower is tender and then add the parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to your taste and more cheese if you like
