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!  

On top of my list currently for cauliflower recipes are my seasoned cauliflower tots, garlic mashed “potatoes” and the most recent addition is this creamy keto risotto.

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 TIPSKeto 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.
