Mediterranean Low-Carb "Risotto"

Pin recipeFollow us 50.2k

When I started following a low-carb paleo-friendly diet a few years ago, I was always trying to find substitutes for high-carb foods. After getting keto-adapted, most cravings went away. The only reason I use cauli-rice zoodles or pancakes & waffles is that I like them, not because I miss their high-carb alternatives.

I have successfully used "cauli-rice" in my Keto Egg Fried Rice, Keto Mexican Rice and even Amazing flour-free Pizza Pepperoni. I'm not a big fan of shirataki noodles and cauliflower is my favourite substitute for both rice and potatoes.

So, I thought this was a perfect recipe to give to Kyndra at Peace, Love and Low-Carb. Starting from today, I will be guest posting for her amazing blog every month! All my recipes will be:

  • savoury
  • paleo / primal
  • keto-friendly
  • easy to prepare
  • using commonly found ingredients

This recipe, which can now be found on Kyndra's blog, meets all the above requirements. As many of you know, I love Mediterranean cuisine, so it's a double winner. So head over to Kyndra's blog and try my Mediterranean Low-carb "Risotto" and discover her amazing low-carb recipes!

Hi!!! On the recipe it says optional: 1 cup parmesan cheese... is that ingredient included in the nutrient profile per serving listed on the recipe?? I think prob not... but just checking! Thanks!


Hi Becky, no the parmesan is not included in the nutrition facts.


Love this one! Made it with the red pesto from your blog, it was ready in no time!
