CHOCOLATE "RISOTTO" (grain-free)

If you’re a chocoholic like me — and especially if you love chocolate for brekkie — this is one you really gotta try.

My “risotto” is made with cauliflower.  Don’t let this scare you off — it has an amazing texture and flavour and a couple of my taste-testers actually thought it was rice!  It also happens to be dairy-free, grain-free, and packed with antioxidants, fibre, healthy fats, protein, adaptogens, and even pre and probiotics!
