I think I am way better and taking photos of yarn than food, but I wanted to share my go to recipe for risotto. It is something that I make at least once every two weeks. Before I start telling you my secret recipe, do you see those peppers in the green bowl? I stir fried all of them for my husband and everyone was coughing and sneezing from the fumes. We all had to leave the first floor to get fresh air! So the peppers will only be grilled outside from now on. Funny, Frodo did not cough once, he has super powers (or he is low to the ground).
1 box of sliced mushrooms your choice
1 1/2 cups of risotto (rice)
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups of vegetable broth
2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese
saute the mushrooms in a frying pan with the oil until nearly soft. Add all the rice then half of the broth (2 cups) bring to a boil over medium heat stirring every time you walk by, do not cover with a lid! Once the two cups are absorbed by the rice add the rest of the broth and stir occasionally. When rice is done (I taste test) add the parmesan cheese and stir in. Ready to eat!!
It looks very pretty with some sprinkled parsley as well.
Remember you have to buy risotto rice for the creaminess factor.
Do you have a favorite rice dish?
