Cauliflower Lemon Risotto

I love this new recipe. A very easy recipe with a rich, bright summer flavor you will want this is your weekly rotation. Those that know me know that I don’t eat rice. I love food and eating is one of the great joys of life. Especially when sharing food with the people, you love.

Success! You're on the list.
