A few weeks ago, my friend Donna and I were planning a small get together to watch some movies. There were going to be 5 of us. Donna is also a fantastic cook (She’s Italian-it’s in the genes), but we wanted to do something healthy. The Today Show happened to be on and they showed a few examples of low carb, yet satisfying dishes. Two of them stood out for us. One was a salmon dish with an avocado “butter” and a cauliflower “risotto” with wild mushrooms.

Donna looked at me as said, “Ooh! Wanna try those?” “Why not,” I answered. “It’s always fun to try new recipes!” We made them both at her house on movie night and everyone agreed they were both good….but the original risotto recipe wasn’t “zingy” enough for anyone. It was a little bland, frankly. Donna and I both started riffing on what we could do with it. “It needs a LOT more mushrooms!” ” How about three times more garlic?” “Yeah, and we can add other veggies to it!” You get the idea.

Not willing to leave it to just idle chatter, I had to try it again, with my added twists to it. This is what I came up with. I added some mixed seafood to it to make it a one dish meal. This was MUCH better than the original recipe. Thanks, Donna, for adding some great suggestions…

Doesn’t it look good? I made this for myself and now have leftovers! I love leftovers! Seriously, it’s really satisfying and doesn’t leave you with that heavy feeling after chowing down on pasta or noodles. Give it a shot and let me know how it came out!!
