I've got a vegan coming to dinner Christmas night (heaven forfend! And he drives a BMW, with leather seats, gadzooks!) But mine is not to question, mine is to supply chow.
For starters, I'm thinking of porcini risotto. I have wonderful vegetarian porcini stock cubes from Italy, so that takes care of my liquid. I'll use olive oil instead of butter (gasp). And I will pass some grated parmigiano around for my fellows of the non-vegan persuasion.
My question is, anyone got any other suggestions for making this an acceptable, if not an outstanding, risotto?
