Variety sure is the spice of life. This recipe has three tasty components that come together nicely on the palate: the spicy garlic shrimp, cauliflower rice, and spinach and mushroom mix.
This dish is perfect for when you don’t know what you feel like having. Spicy, garlic-infused shrimp provide protein and are virtually carb-free. As they are sauteed, the shrimp also get well-done and slightly charred on the outside while remaining juicy and flavorful on the inside.
Traditional risotto is made from high-starch rice and is incredibly carb-heavy. Cauliflower rice is the carb replacement for this meal, and it goes so well with the rest of the elements that you won’t miss the rice at all! This recipe also makes an extremely creamy cauli rice with butter and three types of cheeses: cream cheese, cheddar, and parmesan.
To lighten up the flavors, the spinach and mushrooms tie in nicely to add some fiber and veggies to the dish. The recipe calls for cremini mushrooms, but you can always substitute them for shiitake, oyster, or button mushrooms. Mushrooms are a powerhouse of nutrients, and while they are low in calories, they are high in fiber, plant protein, and antioxidants.
This risotto has the perfect protein, fat, and veggies ratio and is sure to keep you satiated and coming back for more!
