As temperatures drop and spirits rise, comfort foods are taking center-stage at our holiday tables. And few things are more comforting than risotto, a creamy blend of rice, stock, and seasonings that’s rich in warmth and flavor. But it’s also rich in carbs, sodium, and saturated fat, which can make it hard for your health-conscious guests to get in on the holiday feast.
Luckily, Chef David Pan’s recipe at Orange Beach Concierge includes a few simple swaps that turn this traditional comfort food into a healthier dish that’s still full of holiday flavor. Riced cauliflower, canned pumpkin, and a host of fresh seasonings combine to create a rich and creamy side that will perfectly complement your holiday spread. Add it to your party menu or serve it at your family meal to send spirits – and macronutrients – soaring!
