Creamy Curried Caulisotto – Cauliflower Risotto Thermomix

Creamy Curried Caulisotto is a cauliflower risotto recipe for the Thermomix. Cauliflower + Risotto = Caulisotto! Creamy in texture, curried flavours, this recipe is a tasty, healthy take on risotto.

I first created this fab recipe when I did my first Whole30 around early 2014. When I shared it originally in the Facebook group, it gained a lot of popularity very fast!

It was so popular that I knew that there just had to be room in my first cookbook, Main Meals Made Easy, for this Cauliflower Risotto Thermomix recipe.

This meal is so healthy and delicious. Using cauliflower “rice” instead of Arborio makes it a lighter option than regular risotto. Added bonus is that the Thermomix makes caulisotto so quickly – 20 minutes from start to finish!

Calories: 233kcal

Ingredients

  • 400 g cauliflower florets
  • 150 g brown onion quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves 10g
  • 20 g coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 200 g mushrooms quartered
  • 100 g green beans or asparagus trimmed, sliced 1-2cm
  • 100 g red capsicum diced
  • 100 g frozen baby peas
  • 100 g coconut cream
  • 20 g Odds-and-Ends Vegetable Stock Concentrate

Instructions

  • Place cauliflower in mixer bowl and turn it to "rice" by processing 10 seconds/reverse/speed 4/MC on. Remove from bowl and set aside.
  • Into the bowl, place onion, garlic, oil and 40g water. Chop 5 seconds/speed 5/MC on. Scrape down bowl. Cook 5 minutes/steaming temperature/speed 1/MC off.
  • Add curry powder. Cook 1 minute/steaming temperature/speed 1/MC off. (If contents is quite dry when you add the powder, add a dash more water now too).
  • Add the riced cauliflower, mushrooms, beans, capsicum, peas, coconut cream and stock. Combine thoroughly with a spatula then cook 9-10 minutes/100/reverse/speed 1/MC on, stopping to stir contents half way through this cooking time. Check after 9 minutes and if you want the vegetables a little more cooked, add the extra minute of cooking time.

Notes

Enjoy alone, or with a fried egg or side salad – either way this is a lovely filling meal.
To include chicken, at step 4, add 300g chicken thigh, diced into 2cm cubes.

Yum! Fed it to my partner & brother, both meat eaters, and they both thought it was great. Will be adding it to our rotation.

Just made this for lunch and I will admit I was a bit sceptical but boy oh boy was this fantastic. Sub’d zucchini for the mushies and added peas instead of beans but seriously I think you can have virtually any veggies you like. Now I am off to clean the bowl with a nice piece of crusty bread. Will be making again for sure.

This is one of our favourite meals. My husband, who loves curries, said he’d pay to eat this at a resturant. ‘Even better than THE butter chicken,’ he said.

Another fantastic meal that can be a main meal or as a side dish, a lunch or dinner! It is so easy to make too!
I did up to the ‘add cauliflower and veg step’, went and picked up the car from a service then completed the meal when I got home….dinner was on the table 9 minutes later!
I used 1 tsp Babas brand Malaysian meat curry powder and it was a beautiful mild taste. Had no mushrooms so substituted 1 cm diced butternut pumpkin.
An all round awesome dish thanks Bec.
