I’ll be totally honest, the jury was out on riced cauliflower until I tried this recipe. We had tried it plain and just weren’t a fan. I knew in order for my family to eat it I had to dress it up a bit – enter this fabulous riced cauliflower risotto recipe for the win.

It had me at first bite and I watched in anticipation as Trent took his first bite to see if he liked it. He was hooked too and we’ve all been enjoying this wonderfully creamy and cheesy side dish ever since.

Truth be told, it would be really easy for me to eat this entire recipe as a meal by itself. Yes, it’s that good!

 

Where To Buy Riced Cauliflower

While you can definitely whip out your food processor and make your own riced cauliflower I decided to go for a much easier route – frozen.

You can find riced cauliflower in the frozen section of just about every grocery store, but I was excited to find it where I shop the most – Aldi! (I love that they have healthier options for those of us trying to make better choices with our eating.)

Cauliflower Nutrition Facts

I’m amazed at the all of the health benefits that can come from one small plant. Thanks to Dr. Axe, I learned that cauliflower packs a punch with tons of essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, and much more. It can:

  • Decrease the risk of heart disease and brain disorders
  • Fight inflammation
  • Improve digestion and detoxification
  • Help balance hormones
