Cauli-Rice Risotto with Pureed Leeks

Prep Time: 10 minutes   Cook Time: 25 minutes   Makes: 4 servings


  • 1 small leek, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 14-oz. can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 12-oz. bag frozen cauli-rice
  • ½-1 cup broth (or water)
  • 1 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • Black pepper to taste (optional)
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley (optional)

Optional add-ins: 1 cup chopped kale, 1 cup frozen peas (can be cooked and pureed with leek or cooked with cauli-rice if puree is not needed)


  1. Saute leek in 2 teaspoons olive oil (or sweat in water) until soft. Add garlic and cannellinis. Stir and cook for ~30 seconds. Remove from heat. Add to blender and puree until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Add cauli-rice to pan with ½ cup broth and cook over medium heat until soft, ~5-7 minutes. Add parmesan cheese and stir, adding more broth if needed. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add puree to pan. Continue to stir every few minutes as risotto thickens to prevent sticking to the pan. Cook for ~5 minutes longer. Top with fresh chopped parsley and serve.
