Karmaflower Risotto

*Karma is a complicated idea from the East that basically says we reap what we sow, good and bad. This dish is one you can definitely feel good about, because it uses no butter or cream and replaces the rice with cauliflower. Waistline friendly and if you decide not to use the parmesan cheese, it is also vegan.

1 head of cauliflower
3 cloves garlic, minced
1.5 cups vegetable broth
1/2 to 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Roughly chop cauliflower and process in food processor until it looks like grain or rice. Add cauliflower and garlic to large pot, combine the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for about an hour or until liquid is mostly absorbed.

In my version we also added a little bit of chopped portabello mushroom and a few sprigs of fresh parsley from the garden.

Serve hot and enjoy!
