  • 2.6 oz butter
  • 2 cloves garlic grated or pressed
  • ½ pounds mushroom chopped
  • 0.2 cups white wine
  • 0.2-0.4 cups vegetable stock or chicken stock
  • salt and ground white pepper to taste
  • 2-4 tbsp heavy cream optional
  • 0.2 cups parmesan optional


  • grate the cauliflower with a grater or food processor to rice size.
  • Add ⅓ of the butter to a big frying pan on medium heat. Add the chopped mushrooms and garlic and fry until they're soft and golden brown. Season with salt and white pepper.
  • Lower the heat, add the cauliflower and the rest of the butter. Let the butter melt.
  • Pour in the white wine and stir a bit until the wine has evaporated.

  • Once the cauliflower has softened, add the heavy cream and the rest of the stock.
  • Let it simmer until it has the consistency you're looking for. Add more stock/heavy cream if needed.
  • Add the parmesan and stir until it is incorporated into the risotto.
  • Serve and enjoy!
