Cauliflower "Risotto" with Porcini Mushrooms & Peas

Risotto is a Northern Italian rice dish that is cooked for a long time stirring often.  A traditional risotto is cooked with a warm broth added slowly to create a creamy consistency.  As a paleo dish, it takes less time to prepare and the cauliflower gives it a perfect risotto feel.

I remember my Nana would make a cup of coffee and grab her stool and sit at a stove for an hour while preparing risotto!

 **Cindy's Tip!--Take the liquid from the porcini mushrooms and strain to use in soups.  You can also add a little to your risotto to gain a richer flavor!**

You can also find this recipe in my cookbook: Paleo Italian Cooking

Oven-Baked Italian Fennel Sausage and Tomato Risotto

I was in the kitchen making rice balls today and was thinking about another way to use the rest of the risotto. I just came back from the butcher and purchased hot Italian fennel sausage and put this dish together. Took it to a friend’s house and it was a big hit! The next time I make it I will add a little red pepper flakes to kick it up a bit. Other than that – It was amazing!! You need to try this Italian Sausage and Tomato Risotto!

Risotto Primavera

  • Complexity: easy

Risotto Primavera

Primavera is normally a pasta dish with spring vegetables.  I was at the farmers market this morning and picked up red peppers and had frozen peas and porcini mushrooms at home.  

This side dish was perfect with my leg of lamb roast I made for our Sunday dinner!

Enjoy

Risotto with Peas and Pancetta
  • Complexity: medium

Risotto with Peas and Pancetta

I have loves peas since as long as I can remember. My nana and I would always enjoy peas with almost every meal. Our favorite would be to pour our tomato sauce.

What makes my Risotto with Peas and Pancetta special is I cook the pancetta in the same pan as the risotto!  We took this picture at NBC Connecticut and added the pancetta at the end of the segment then shared with the staff.  What a great day..
