Has anyone made a grain-free risotto?

This was in today's paper... a grain-free risotto made with squid. Just thought I'd share it. Looks pretty Paleo.

I think it's pretty much cut thin slices out of the taro (probably with a mandoline), cut julienne pieces out of the slices (maybe in step 1 with the right mandoline), and then mince the julienne pieces.

Looks awesome! You'll probably have to change this to a question ("Would you eat this?") or something to keep it from being closed, though.

Life is too short to cut a bazillion rice shaped pieces out of squid or taro. Just use white short grain rice and don't eat too much.

I've not made one with squid, but have been meaning to try using cauliflower as a rice substitute. Here's a cauliflower risotto that looks interesting!

No why bother, sounds like too much trouble.

I actually had one at a restaurant last night. It was made with taro and it was pretty delicious. The taro absorbed the cream and cheese pretty much like rice. The only reason I probably wouldn't make it myself if that the taro was cut into teeny tiny cubes and I have NO idea how to do that.
