Very tasty and creamy. Cauliflower rice risotto, with spinach, mushrooms, and button tomatoes makes this dish a wholesome keto-friendly meal. I topped mine with 3 ounces of broiled salmon.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-low heat. Add olive oil, followed by mushrooms, spinach, and garlic. Simmer just until mushrooms get soft, spinach is wilted, and garlic is fragrant, making sure not to burn, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Stir in cauliflower rice and cook until a rice-like consistency is reached, 5 to 7 minutes more. Pour in heavy cream, paprika, garlic salt, salt, and pepper; let simmer for 5 minutes more. Stir in tomatoes until just softened, 3 to 5 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can keep the tomatoes whole if preferred.

You can use coconut oil instead of olive if you like.

2.21.20 II’m not doing the Keto diet, but I really like riced cauliflower, so I wanted to give this a try. And I can tell you that to my surprise, this was REALLY good. The only thing that I will do differently in the future is add quite a bit more spinach, and not saute it at the start with the mushrooms and garlic. It wilts very quickly, so by the time the mushrooms are cooked, you’re starting to get concerned that it’s going to burn. Also, might cut back just a bit on the paprika (just personal preference here). Probably will cook garlic and mushrooms for several minutes and then add in the spinach. What’s really interesting to me is what an important role the tomatoes play. It’s a totally different texture than the rest of this recipe, and that little punch of juiciness and sweetness works flawlessly. SissyAnn, thank you for a very nice lunch today. This was quick and easy to make, fresh tasting, and simply good!. Read More

My new favorite way to eat Cauli rice! I did add the spinach much later than the recipe says because I prefer it that way, and I added parmesan cheese with the heavy cream, and a little on top after. Delicious Read More
