No grains are required in this Paleo pumpkin and sage risotto, as it uses cauliflower in place of rice. The pumpkin keeps the creamy texture without dairy!


  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1/2 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 head of cauliflower, riced in food processor or grated
  • 1/2 cup stock of your choice
