Favorite Ways to Cook Risotto?

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.


Here's mine....

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?

Thank you!
