Gluten Free Recipe Paleo Risotto using Cauliflower

I have been looking for a paleo diet friendly risotto recipe and stumbled across your fab website. I have never heard of grating raw cauliflower to create a gluten free recipe before so was keen to try.
I had a large cauliflower head in the cupboard so set out to grate it on my hand grater ... if you use an electric food processor or similar what kind of setting /attachment do you recommend to get the right consistency for the cauliflower to turn into a rice substitute consistency ?

Anyway , I grated the cauliflower and as my daughter does not like cooked peppers we substituted the peppers for courgettes. We also did not have any chives available so finely cut up some fresh parsley and 3 leaves of curly kale instead to add some greens . Added some chicken stock as per your Risotto recipe and lets just say it turned out absolutely yummy ..the texture of the cauliflower reminded us of couscous of quinoa and I was surprised just how lovely it soaked up the juices

We served our main portion with some homemaded paleo frittatas , made with lamb mince , mushrooms and leeks as well a binding egg ... a very warming meal on a cold february evening ..

This is going to become a firm favourite in our paleo diet menu planner .. even cold leftovers taste nice as a quick paleo breakfast ... thanks so much for introducing us to grated cauliflower..cant wait to experiment more
