Basic vegetable risotto recipe without the rice. You can add 3 oz. of diced mushrooms of your choice for additional protein content. This dish is a perfect substitute for a rice-free meal and can be enjoyed with lean proteins such as cooked chicken breast, turkey and salmon.
1Cut cauliflower into large chunks.
2In a food processor, pulse cauliflower pieces to create rice texture. Set aside.
3In a medium saucepan, sauté garlic and onion with olive oil for 2 minutes or until fragrant.
4Add chopped cauliflower and milk. Reduce the heat and simmer (uncovered) for 10 minutes or until cauliflower is soft and fully cooked. Stir occasionally.
5Combine cottage cheese and continue cooking until the cheese melts. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
