If I ever want to impress someone this is my go to recipe! This creamy risotto is definitely the way to go especially if I don’t have the extra time on my hands. It is soo simple even I can’t mess it up plus it doesn’t take too long so I have the time to get ready for the dinner, which is always a struggle when I cook. I try to present the food and there is a noodle or something on my shirt.
This risotto always creates a fancy atmosphere so I like to save it for special occasions. Sometimes I like to add a splash of dry white wine into the pan right after toasting the rice. The wine adds lightness and acidity, which balances out the richness of the risotto. But really, it is just an excuse to open the bottle before dinner and have a glass during the cooking ;).
I was wondering how to create the creamy taste in a vegan risotto and it turned out to be very simple. Just 1 Tbsp. of plant based butter does the trick.
