Risotto: Squisito!

18 February 2006

I made a spinach risotto last night. So good! Perfect comfort food for these blisteringly cold days we are having.

And really, so easy. Sure, you have to add the broth cup by cup, but it isn’t like you have to stand over it, worrying that it will scorch. And by that time, the other ingredients (simple and few) are already prepped and beside you.

If you’ve never tried a risotto, you should. Two rules: 1) definitely use arborio rice, and 2) don’t stress. It really is very forgiving.

A perfect meal in a bowl.

(And arborio also makes the best damn rice pudding you ever ate. I only allow it once a season, it tastes so rich. But the ingredients are the very same as other recipes that use more pedestrian rice.)
