Please share with me all your favorite risotto recipes!
It's hard not to throw in an entire stick of butter or cup of cream, but if you have any healthy-ish risotto recipes -- don't hold back!
Bonus points for creative flavor combinations.
Classic: red wine + chopped white onion sauteed in butter
Valentine's: chicken stock + drizzle truffle oil + topped with marinated porcini mushrooms + parmesan slivers
Weekend: veggie stock + chopped scallions + asparagus + white wine + white & black pepper
Leftover deluxe: braised short ribs (or any tender meat: osso-buco style, pork shoulder, etc.) + himalayan pink salt
Summer Risotto: fresh sweet peas + roasted garlic cauliflower + chili flakes + white wine + herbed bread crumbs (thyme // oregano // green onion // leeks) + drizzle olive oil
Southwest Risotto: tomato juice + stock + black beans + sauteed chopped onion + can chillies (chipotle // ancho) + salt + handful cilantro
I like to leave that last one a bit charred on the bottom like dolsot bibimbap.
I haven't made risotto balls yet as it seems a bit sticky and laborious.
Perhaps someone has baked them with success or has any clean-up-minimizing wisdom to share?
