Ingredients in Whole30 + Keto Cauliflower Rice Risotto

I discovered this ingredient on accident when making my whole30 + keto mashed cauliflower. Before adding it to the food processor I tasted it, and realized that it tasted so similarly to risotto!

The ingredients are so simple. I use frozen cauliflower rice, which is my favorite. Pre-chopped for you, much more mild cauliflower flavor than raw or refrigerated pre-chopped, and you can always have it on hand!

The risotto gets its amazing flavor from ghee, garlic, cashew cream and my homemade chicken stock.
