Healthy whole30 and paleo creamy cauliflower risotto with truffle toasted mushrooms and a silky smooth best ever vegan cheese sauce! Only three minutes cooking time!
Gosh, would you just look at the that gorgeous mountain of melty cheese sauce spilling over that steamy cauli rice? Mmmm, I can taste it through the screen… don’t I wish it would jump out at me Willy Wonka style, so I could have just one more spoonful? 🙂
This meal has been on repeat x6 in my house this week! Not kidding, I’m obsessed. And for good reason too, because this cheese sauce is something worth making again and again. Finally, I have found a vegan cheese sauce I can fall in love with! (And boy have I!). Not to scare you off with the words vegan and cheese sauce in the same breath, but for us “paleoers”, this kind of thing is a dream come true! And just think, you can eat this creamy cauliflower risotto for whole30 or paleo!
A few favorites…
Well, first up I have a couple favorite things to share with you… A few summer favorites form this week that have me inspired!
Suns out, birks out. ALL. DAY. LONG. These things don’t leave my feet. I remember when I was a kid and mom would wear her Birkenstocks 24/7 and I would tell her, “Mom those are so ugly, you need new shoes!” Because, of course in 2000 platform heel flip flops were all the rage, not hippy trending birks. Looking back, I couldn’t be prouder of mom for her style!
My current reading consists of a children’s chapter book on the inventors (yes, that’s how I fall asleep). But for real readings I have been devouring The Woman Code! This book is legit, seriously has changed the way I look at myself and operate. It’s a must read for any woman!! And I won’t tell you anymore, because it you are a lady you need to start reading it right now and find out for yourself.
Also, I have been crazy craving ice-cream lately. But didn’t want to make any, so I may or may not have sat in the car drinking Trader Joe’s coconut creamer, because it tastes like ice-cream. Hey, don’t judge, it’s gooooood.
Lately, I have had my eye on this gorgeous cake stand. And now all I need is an excuse to make a cake and buy a cake stand. Any requests? Someone, help a girl out. 🙂
But, something I actually did get this week was this pretty new piece, perfect for serving up pretty much any easy family dinner. I’m planning to make a boatload of taco, as well as stuffed sweet potatoes in it. Stay tuned for the recipes!
Okay, I’m done. Those are my current faves. 🙂 Now you can eat risotto!
Now to the risotto!
*Disclaimer: So, this sauce may not taste exactly like regular cheese (I’m not making any 100% pure promises that it will taste exactly like cheese. Because, let’s face it, there is not an ounce of actual cheese or dairy to be found in this recipe! But to me, the flavor turned out like a mix of parm and delicious. 🙂 I may or may not have dipped my finger(s) into the mason jar of cheese sauce…
That silky sauce poured over a bed of cauli rice just wasn’t quite perfection with out a sprinkling of fresh herbs and toasted truffled mushrooms! Ugh, they are soooo good! I could eat those crispy things with every meal. And they are so easy to make! I made my truffled mushrooms by slicing them, spicing them, and cooking them in my toaster oven. Easaaayy.
Well, I hope you have found a healthy and yummy dinner for tonight! Enjoy!
