Cauliflower Risotto

Last week I made a flatbread pizza called Spinach, Tomato, and Olive Flatbread, and shared it, here, on my blog. I made it by using ingredients that are considered healthy and nutritious.

The best part of this recipe is that it uses cauliflower instead of rice. Genius!

So, what are nutritional yeast and miso paste? How can you use them in your daily cooking?

Here are some notes from my research:
