A north Italian dish, risotto is a delicious creamy meal that can be served as a substantial main course or in smaller portions as a light starter, as is traditional in Italy.
This recipe is a zesty, fresh and healthier version as it is made without butter or white wine so it’s great for serving to all the family and if you have any picky eaters who aren’t too keen on asparagus simply swap it out for something they will chomp down on! Just don’t forget that risotto needs to be stirred regularly so you’ll need to put some time aside to keep an eye on this dish as you’re making it to allow the release of starch in the rice which is what ultimately gives risotto it’s lovely creamy texture.
One of the things we love the most about this recipe is just how easy it is to put a dish together that not only tastes amazing, but is a healthy choice for all the family to enjoy. Plus, all you need to make this recipe at home is a frying pan, a jug for the stock and a juicer and zester for the lemon and you’re good to go!
