I love substituting cauliflower for many different starches. Today I decided to try my hand at a risotto using Johnny Pizza, or you can use Evening in Tuscany. This flavorful mix is hand blended with Mediterranean oregano, basil, garlic, onion, thyme, fennel seed, red bell pepper, crushed red pepper, parsley and marjoram. Fabulous as an Italian blend or amazing in your pizza sauce or my favorite—bake it into the crust! You can also use it to add pizzaz to a frozen pizza.
You can vary this recipe to accommodate any diet. I used parmesan cheese but you can use brewers yeast just as well. If you are using real cheese make sure you get a chunk of parmesan and freshly shred for the recipe, it makes all the difference!
This risotto is so rich and creamy! You will not miss the rice.
A nice glass of Chianti Classico tasted fabulous with this dish.
Wine & Spice Makes Everything Nice!
