Cauliflower Risotto

I'm a home cook that is passionate about creating nutritious meals from sustainable sources that supports a healthy lifestyle.
I like food that captures my eye and appeals to my mouth, hence "FirstPicLaterEat".
About the dish:
The Cauliflower "Risotto" is my favourite go-to recipe when I am looking for something quick to cook at home. This very light version of the classic risotto is nourishing and an absolute crowd pleaser. Most importantly it ticks all the boxes of healthy clean eating without being overcomplicated and time-consuming like the traditional risotto. It is also packed with nutritious goodness such as good fats from organic coconut oil and organic coconut cream. Plus a good source of protein from wild caught fish bought from my local fish shop. It is grain free as we use cauliflower "rice" instead of traditional arborio rice. The fresh thyme from our veggie patch makes it really fragrant as well!
I am fortunate enough to be able to find most of the ingredients for this risotto from organic sources. But if you can't find organic products, then I'm sure that your own version will taste just as amazing as mine. I believe in eating well not only to feel better but to live a long healthy and happy life. Taking the time to prepare a meal for yourself and your loved ones is a great way to practice self-care. Best of all it only takes 30 minutes to prepare it!
