Your Holiday Veggie Risotto

Nov 7, 2017

Halloween has come and gone and that means the holiday season is upon us. Some believe this is the most wonderful time of the year with the family get-togethers, Friendsgiving, Christmas baking. But then there are those that do not enjoy this time of year, because there is just so much going on! Well whatever category you may fall in, the Produce Navigator is here to help yet again, as we share a simple and tasty dish that you can take to all of your holiday gatherings.

All holidays call for getting together with those you love and sharing a meal. Traditionally Thanksgiving calls for a Turkey with all the trimmings like mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and stuffing just to name a few and get your stomach growling and mouth-watering. Yes, we love those traditional side dishes but this year why not try a healthy alternative. This month, at Gold Coast we have whipped up a Veggie Risotto, made with our Caulifornia™ Garden Rice.

Our Caulifornia™ Garden Rice is a blend of riced Cauliflower, Broccoli and Carrots. Our Garden Rice comes in a one-pound bag, washed, diced and ready to use. It is part of the Caulifornia™ family along with our Snow (100% riced cauliflower) and our Broccoli Bits (100% riced broccoli.) All of our Caulifornia™ items were created with the home cook in mind. The entire line allows you to make quick, easy, healthy meals, whatever you can dream up… the possibilities are endless.

Caulifornia™ Garden Rice is the perfect carb alternative that can be used in a variety of ways. Some of our favorite way to use the riced veggie medley is in tater tots, or mixed up as hash browns, or as the base to your favorite fried rice recipe. And that is the basis of this month’s recipe, we are making a Veggie Risotto that is oh so good… you’ll forget that you are only eating vegetables. This recipe is pretty easy and comes together quickly, which is perfect because with all the craziness that comes with the season, you’ll want to have your dish ready in a hurry so you can bolt out the door.

Thanks for joining us on The Produce Navigator again this month, we know you’re busy planning your Thanksgiving feast and travel plans. Check out the video below for a step by step guide and the handy printable recipe is at the end of this post.
