     Creamy Cauliflower Risotto

Category   Salads - Soups - Sidedishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   6
Preptime   20 minutes

1 cauliflower head, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch florets
1/4 cup classic olive oil, divided
1/2 cup whipping cream or half-and-half
4 to 5 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup finely diced onion
1 tsp dried thyme
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Farenheight. In a large bowl toss cauliflower with 2 tablespoons of the oil. Spread on a rimmed baking pan; season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until fork-tender and browned. Reserve half of the florets in a bowl; set aside. Place remaining half of the florets in a large bowl; add cream. Using a hand-held immersion blender, blend until mixture is smooth, set aside.
In a medium saucepan bring broth to a simmer. Meanwhile, in a deep-sided skillet heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add onion and thyme; saute 4 to 6 minutes or until onions soften. Add rice to skillet; saute 1-minute or until slightly toasted. Add 1/2 cup of the broth; cook until liquid is absorbed, stirring constantly. Repeat, adding broth in 1/2 cup amounts, cooking and stirring 18 to 20 minutes or until broth is absorbed, and rice is creamy and al dente.
Stir in cauliflower-cream mixture and Parmesan; cook 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in reserved florets and (if desired) parsley; cook until heated through. Spoon into bowls, and serve.
