Preparation

  1. In a small saucepan, pour in vegetable stock and add one sprig of rosemary. Allow to simmer while preparing the rest of the meal. 
  2. In the meantime, use a food processor to pulse the chopped cauliflower into smaller rice-sized pieces. 
  3. In a large saucepan, allow olive oil to heat up over medium heat. Add onions, salt and pepper. Allow the onions to soften and become translucent, about 5 minutes. 
  4. Add the cauliflower, mushrooms and garlic. Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes. Pour in the vegetable stock and let simmer for 10 minutes, stirring often. 
  5. Once all the liquid is absorbed, add the frozen peas and let them warm for 1 minute. 
  6. Add Parmesan cheese for a garnish. Serve and enjoy!
