I was amazed by how easy it was put together, although the risotto did need to be stirred a lot….. My entire family loved this dish: I cooked this at my parents house, my mom couldn’t eat it as she’s not allowed to eat rice at the moment, so I brought leftovers to my brother and put one portion in the freezer.
From now on I’ll be making more risotto!! I did make three small changes in the recipe: I used Pecorino Romano instead of Parmesan, red onion instead of regular onion and I added a bit more spinach and peas to the risotto ’cause I love veggies! My risotto was paired with köfte from the Turkish butcher. What a nice combination: the creamy softness of the risotto toned down the spicyness of the köfte. Jessica, thank you so much for picking this recipe and showing me that risotto is made easy-peasy: you’ve made my entire family happy!!
