Easy Carbonara



  • 34 cups of frozen riced cauliflower
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 6 cubes garlic cloves (or 6 Dorot Cubes)
  • 1 tbsp dried Italian Herb seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cashew creamer (or coconut cream for a nut free version)
  • 23 egg yolks (1 per serving)


  1. Heat a large skillet on medium heat.
  2. Use a sharp knife or kitchen sheers to cut bacon int 1/2 inch pieces.
  3. When the skillet is hot, add the bacon to the skillet.
  4. Cook, stirring occasionally until the bacon is mostly crispy, about 6 minutes.
  5. Carefully drain SOME of the rendered bacon fat out of the skillet (save for something else).
  6. Pop in 4-6 Dorot garlic cubes. Stir well until the garlic begins to brown.
  7. Add in the cauliflower rice, salt and dried herbs.
  8. Stir well until rice is thawed out and any liquid it released evaporated.
  9. Add in the cream.
  10. When it begins to simmer, in a minutes or so, it will thicken quickly, stir well until well combined and creamy.
  11. Serve while hot.
  12. Top each serving with a fresh egg yolk and mix in. The hot cauliflower risotto with cook the raw yolk.
  13. The result is a delicious, creamy dish that everyone will love.
  14. No fuss, no grains, no dairy. Garnish with fresh herbs. I love basil on it!

Recipe Notes:

  • If you don’t like cauliflower use zoodles instead. For zoodles, add them in at the end. Cook the bacon with the garlic and herbs. Add in the cashew cream and make a thick sauce. Add in the zoodles at the very end. Toss lightly in sauce and serve.
  • *Remember to zoodles and salt your zucchini prior to using to they don’t release too much fluid into your dish.
  • other Dorot products (cilantro, basil & ginger) contain corn starch, please read labels if you have any food allergies. The garlic however does not contain any corn or grain
