Chili Garlic Cauliflower Risotto Bowls are an easy Paleo dish to satisfy that comfort food craving! A healthy vegan recipe with a spicy sauce. The Cauliflower Rice makes for the “risotto” and is cooked a non dairy milk (coconut or almond), all in one pan! Then we top it with a spicy sauce made with chili, garlic, and avocado combined. A flavorful, yet simple, meal!
Just letting you know this Cauliflower Risotto Bowls post has been republished with a video and updated content for you! I hope you enjoy. Thank you for following Cotter Crunch Y’all!.
Hi there. First things first. I am sharing this recipe because ya’ll, it’s in the COOKBOOK and I get to giveaway 6 cookbooks next week. Which means not only can share a cookbook recipe, but I can GIVEBACK to you all who have supported. THANK YOU!
Join me! Yes, come visit my table. Today’s Cauliflower Risotto Bowls are waiting. This is a Cotter Crunch guiltless gourmet special ya’ll. Guiltless as is ….
No performing. No pretending. No proving ourselves. PRESSURE Free zone. Just goodness and a bowl of spicy “risotto-ish” goodness. That being said, these are pretty guilt free when it comes to classic comfort food. Just sayin..
But I digress. Let’s get back to the bowl recipe. Cause you know I will forever be infatuated with Superfood bowl recipes. So let’s start this recipe post out with a little behind the scenes story. I’m going to tell you how this cauliflower risotto dish came about and why I’m excited to freely share it, cool?
You see, I was reading this AMAZING devotional over at Proverbs31.org. I just love starting my day off with those words. Anyway, Jennie got me thinking. So often we strive to prove ourselves when we don’t need to. For me, I love my work and creating gluten free recipes. When it comes to business (food blogging, photography, and nutrition), or any important role for that matter, it can be easy to get wrapped up in the outcome. Will this recipe be pinned, shares, mentions, etc.? Will I be able to accomplish my goals this month?
Whoa whoa whoa… that’s not why I (we) started sharing and creating recipes. Yes, stats and goals are beneficial, but do they define our worth or our value? ABSOLUTELY NOTE! They don’t define us. What does defines us? Our purpose and passion behind each action we take, in all areas!
Cotter corniness seeping in here.
Which leads me to this cauliflower risotto recipe. And my purpose.
A guilt free recipe. As in, I did not plan this recipe for performance. I did not spend oooodles of time photography or trying figure out the right SEO title. I did not make this for my handsome Kiwi dwelling husband (sorry babe). I made this guilt free cauliflower risotto bowl recipe with chili garlic avocado sauce totally on a whim, because I wanted to. I night to myself and a bottle of wine might led to a Cotter Inspiration and major Craving. And you know what? It has become of our favorite meals (along with shrimp or chicken) to make. Which, again, is why I BEGGED my publisher to put it in my Nourishing Superfood Bowls cookbook. It must, I repeat, it must, be shared!
Here’s my recap in a handy dandy video for ya!
HOW TO MAKE CHILI GARLIC RISOTTO BOWLS
On another note, I don’t even know if this should be categorized as risotto, but I’m going with it. Cause I WANT TO. LOL! Cauliflower Rice has been our to go veggie lately. Plus there’s the fact that I wanted to try use up more of our CSA veggies. Like chili pepper, jalapeños, herbs, and all the avocados!
Um, ya… more spicy avocado (avocado-y? Ya, that’s a word) sauces recipes please!
Craving on a whim aside, this no pressure zone recipe actually does serve a nourishing purpose. Ready?
A Nerdy Nutrition Tip Comin At Ya!
Nothing to prove but a cauliflower superfood coolness factor.
Cauliflower contains a good source of choline, a water soluble B vitamin similar to other vitamins, such in the B vitamin complex family. This is vitamin is super important for pregnant women as this B Complex (folic acid included) boosts brain development. And no I am not pregnant. Just a nutrition nerd.
Now, if you are vegan or vegetarian this is cauliflower risotto is also beneficial, nutrient wise!
Why? Because normally choline consumption comes from eating eggs, beef, fish, etc. But CAULIFLOWER (along with some other legumes) is another great choline source that you can easily STOCK UP ON! Like say in multiple bowls of cauliflower risotto.
Better yet, if you are paleo, just throw some beef liver and egg on these bowls and have yourself a Choline Hay Day! Hey, I’m all for more Choline health benefits. Increased brain function (yes please), energy, anti-inflammatory response, and better digestion.
Speaking of brain function. I’m ready for my brain to share this cauliflower risotto recipe before it loses momentum.
Gah, felt so good to share this no pressure Cotter creation.Print
Today’s guilt free cauliflower risotto recipe post consisted of random rants, gratitude, and nutrition tip to fuel you along!. Ya, welcome to the inside of my brain. You’re welcome.
Ever tried cauliflower “risotto?” What’s one thing you are grateful for today?
