The title of this recipe will probably make my Italian ancestors roll over in their graves. Or, just say “fuhgeddaboudit” while they walk down Mulberry street with a cigar in one hand and cannoli in the other.


If you’re looking for the most authentic risotto recipe on the internet, you have come to the wrong place. If you’re hoping for a creamy, tasty, lower-carb alternative that comes together in about 20 minutes, then read on!


My favorite thing about this recipe is how versatile it is. To make it, you basically just need cauliflower rice, tahini, broth, and a couple seasonings. The rest is up to you! It can easily be made keto and vegan with just a few adjustments and you can throw virtually any vegetable you want depending on what you have on hand. I like adding peas, mushrooms, and spinach but adjust it to your tastes and what’s in season. Corn and zucchini would be delicious in the summer and pumpkin or butternut squash would make this a great, warming dish during the fall and winter months. Those are just a couple suggestions, but this recipe is already offensive to Italian cooking, go nuts and throw whatever the heck you want in there!
