Roasted Cauliflower Risotto – Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, September 26th, 2011

No need to keep an eye on this risotto. Just add rice, wine and broth to sautéed garlic and onions, and let the oven work its magic for 15 quick minutes. Mix this creamy concoction with butter, smooth fontina cheese and fresh herbs and vegetables for a rich and satisfying fill-you-up dish.

Add a light Endive and Pear Salad from Food Network Magazine to round out this go-to weeknight meal.

Note: Make sure you use vegetable broth instead of chicken.

    Love the roasted cauliflower risotto recipe. I am going to try it wth pasta instead of risotto. Your selections really ht the mark. They give me great ideas that I can use at home and can adapt to my family's food choices.

    Vegetables should be celebrated for what they are and not what they aren't (meat).

    The "personal and planetary health" mantra is yet to be backed up by science – the majority of nutritionist are neither grounded in the medical field or science. Nutritionists are similar to Supplements – there is no real way to objectively measure their efficacy; and therefore should be labeled with a similar caveat as used for supplements – warning the consumer.

    Having lived in various areas of Japan (to include Okinawa) I can attest that they eat a lot of vegetables with typically low calorie diets and a good share of seafood BUT they do not advocate meatless diets and they are living proof of what is healthy.

    This inane "Meatless Monday" is yet another area where weak-minded vegetarians who cannot appreciate the food chain are trying to gain inroads into the mainstream… Many people throughout the world do not get enough protein because of access (cost or limited supply) – yes I have lived in Africa+ as well.

    Bottom-line: Meat is part of a balanced diet.

    I loved this and so did my family. We naturally limit red meat. There is fish, pork, chicken, beans, and eggs that are good sources of protein. You don't need red meat daily. Check out he variety!
