I love cauliflower rice, but what's one way to one-up rice? Risotto! This cauliflower risotto is easier to make than regular rice risottos, and tastes so very good. I haven't been able to get a lot of my family members on the cauliflower rice wagon, but they've totally jumped on this cauliflower risotto train! All aboard!

You can knock the Parmesan out of this completely and just use the nutritional yeast if you'd like it to be vegan.
