When thinking of an easy yet filling meal for your keto diet. This keto friendly risotto fits the bill perfectly. Packed with vegetables that have minimal carbs and can be eaten as a meal in itself or as a side to a meat dish for example.
Rice itself is packed with carbs and sugars. No way even a couple of mouthfuls would keep you in ketosis. And a traditional risotto with rice is a labour of love to prepare and cook but is time consuming.
Here we use cauliflower, a keto staple, for the look and texture of the rice element. We add great keto friendly flavours like white wine, red onion, fatty bacon and double cream.
This dish is great for storing in a freezer if you wish to make a lot of it quickly at once for warming up whenever you want it. If you are ever in a rush but want something a little wholesome you can simply heat a portion through.
You can also change varying ingredients as well to suit your mood or taste. Leek, asparagus, chicken are all good options.
Or if you are just doing low carb and not strict keto you can add a little vegetable or chicken stock whilst it’s cooking.
