A suprisingly delicious cauliflower risotto! This was really good - with the following modifications. I added kale (1 cup chopped) and shredded zucchini (1 1/2 cups) because I had them in the freezer. I steamed the cauliflower, kale, and garlic cloves in a dutch oven for 10 minutes. I dumped the steamer basket into the pot (with ~2 cups of water remaining). I added 3 oz. taleggio (like Brie) which melted like butter and ~1/4 tsp. each salt and fresh black pepper. I roughly pureed the mixture right in the pot with a wand blender and then stirred in the shredded zucchini. Just before serving, I stirred in ~1/2-1 cup cheddar/Jack blend. I served this over a wild rice blend (made with the broth and skipped the milk entirely) and passed shredded parmesan at the table.
