Thermobexta’s Creamy Curried Caulisotto

CaulisottoThis recipe, along with a great collection of other healthy, delicious dinners, can be found in my cookbook, Thermobexta Main Meals Made Easy, which you can check out here.

Using cauliflower “rice” instead of arborio makes this a lighter option than regular risotto.

Serves 4

400g cauliflower, broken into florets
150g brown onion, quartered
2 garlic cloves
20g coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp curry powder
200g mushrooms,ย quartered
100g green beans or asparagus, trimmed, cut into 1-2cm lengths
100g red capsicum, diced
100g frozen green peas
100g coconut cream
20g vegetable stock paste concentrate

1. Place cauliflower in mixer bowl and turn it to “rice” by processing for 10 seconds/reverse/speed 4/MC on. Remove from bowl and set aside.

2. Into the bowl, place onion, garlic, oil and 40g water. Chop for 5 seconds/speed 5/MC on. Scrape down sides of bowl. Cook for 5 minutes/steaming temperature/speed 1/MC off.

3. Add curry powder. Cook for 1 minute/steaming temperature/speed 1/MC off. (if contents is quite dry when you add the powder, add a dash more water now too).

4. Add theย riced cauliflower, mushrooms, beans, capsicum, peas, coconut cream and stock. Combine thoroughly with a spatula then cook for 9-10 minutes/100/reverse/speed 1/MC on, stopping to stir contents half way through this cooking time. Check after 9 minutes and if you want the vegetables a little more cooked, add the extra minute of cooking time.

Enjoy alone, or with a fried egg or side salad – either way this is a lovely filling meal.
To include chicken, at step 4, add 300g chicken thigh, diced into 2cm cubes.

  6. Lovely recipe, even cauliflower hating DH devoured his bowl for lunch! It reheated beautifully the following day. Thanks Bek!


  7. Fabulous!! I’d been eyeing it off for months – wondering if it could really be as yum and easy as comments kept suggesting, and delighted to say it was on both counts! We had as a side, mainly so we could pack the rest up for lunches, but next time I think we will have on its own. Followed the recipe to the letter and turned out perfect. Lovely and light feeling, tasty but healthy. Thanks! Awesome ๐Ÿ™‚


  8. I thought I would try this recipe as love trying new things in my Thermomix. I thought it would be too healthy and not taste so great… wrong I was. Hubby even loved it and was surprised when I told him it wasn’t a rice dish as he thought. I was upset to find that I had used the last of my veggie stock so had to resort to powdered and it was still great. Making my veggie stock now in readiness for the next time I make this yummy recipe. Thanks so much.

  9. Wow I wasn’t really sure how this was going to taste but oh gosh, was delicious! Would definitely recommend and a great dish to use all your leftover veggies! I just used thickened cream as was all I had on hand. Thankyou!


  10. Made this today to go with SM Lamb Rogan Josh………do it! Had some alpha males telling me they were sure there was real rice in there! Great accompaniment to any curry, easiest way to get a LOT of veg into people in one simple sitting
