This simple keto low carb cheese risotto is the perfect complement to any meal! The rich cheesy flavors really make your taste buds dance for joy!

A long time ago, before my gestational diabetes days, I frequented a Japanese restaurant that served the best cheese risotto.

It was served tableside, in the cheese wheel.  The server would bring the wheel out and start mixing the risotto inside the wheel and of course, I would always ask for extra cheese!

Unfortunately, that restaurant has since closed, and I have also adopted a low carb lifestyle.

But, that doesn’t mean I can’t try to create a low carb version of the cheese risotto I loved so much!  This is why I made this recipe so that you can also enjoy delicious cheese risotto low carb/keto style!

This cheese risotto recipe took a few tries to test what best worked to substitute rice.  In the end, the mildness of cauliflower seem to fit best to produce a low carb dish similar to traditional rice risotto.

I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how well the cauliflower rice combines with the cheese and cream creating a delicious and satisfying dish.

This dish is very rich, as are most risotto dishes and therefore very filling.  It produces two small bowls of risotto perfect for accompanying a steak or another protein.  But if you are eating this alone or just have a big appetite, you may want to consider doubling up the recipe.

This dish is a very simple one to whip up and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!  Happy cooking!
