Cauliflower Risotto

So eating low-carb has its challenges of course. One of which is trying to come up with yummy ways to eat veggies. Tonight’s dinner was a success in that department. Its not rice, but risotto style cauliflower has a nice texture and is a tasty way to serve this versatile vegetable.

I did have a bowl of leftovers, so will try a fried rice version for tomorrow’s supper.
