Creamy Keto Risotto
I don't know about you, but risotto has been something I've been missing for a while and used to absolutely love! So, I set out to make the best creamy keto risotto on the planet.
There are so many wonderful dishes that you can make with cauliflower rice and so many..... not so wonderful dishes. Trust me, I've had plenty of both!
I buy a giant bag of frozen, organic pre-made cauliflower rice from Costco. It saves a TON of time (and money).
OTHER KETO BUDGET TIPS - Keto on a budget
What I love about this recipe is that on those nights when you are just tired of having some variation of meat and veggies for dinner, you can throw this in there as a side dish.
You'll be getting a hefty dose of veggies, yet you can let your mind wander and pretend you are eating real risotto.
I mean, I don't crave real risotto anymore, but recipes like this make me happy as I do miss the flavor and texture. But not anymore!
Is Risotto Keto?
This risotto is definitely keto. Normal risotto, however, is most definitely not. You'd be surprised how many non keto recipes can very easily be made keto. Just take a gander through the rest of my recipes and you'll be pleasantly suprised!
How to Store Keto Risotto
Just throw the leftovers in an airtight container and stick them in the fridge! They could last for 3-4 days if kept cold and stored properly.
New Flavors and Substitions
I have been known to add a bunch of fun new flavors and substitutions to this recipe. My favorite is to add some fresh lemon juice as well as mushrooms! So tasty. Different cheeses also work well. I would keep the Parmesan, but you can add in some new cheese flavors as well.
How Many Carbs in Keto Risotto
This keto risotto recipe comes in at about 3 net carbs per serving. Super low carb and super healthy!
The carb count will change slightly depending on any substitutions you make (if any), but the base recipe is only 3!
How to Make Keto Risotto
