We could say this cauliflower risotto with mushrooms is a distant cousin of the traditional Italian risotto. Italian risotto is a creamy dish made with Arborio rice, stock, or wine and cheese. Our cauliflower risotto looks similar but it’s much lighter and it’s crunchier. Obviously, this is not prepared with rice, but it’s an excellent option when you need a quick and light side dish.
Mushrooms make it thicker and Cotija cheese is a delicious variation to the parmesan cheese that is usually used in Italian risotto.
