Risotto. That’s one of the first recipes that I learned from my mom. I saw her stirring and stirring the risotto for exactly 18 minutes hundreds and hundreds of times. She shared with me some secrets on how to make it more creamy or tasty and today I’m sharing with you this family recipe, a traditional one from Northern Italy.
We are going to prepare a vegetarian risotto, with fresh sweet peas and cheese, but there are tons of ways to cook risotto: with meat (with sausage is amazing!!), with veggies, with fish (oh, wow, that’s sooo good) and even with strawberries!
Risotto is a very kid friendly recipe. As we are cooking for children I did some changes to the original recipe without loosing anything in taste or texture: I’m using extra virgin oil of olive and cheese instead of butter and I’m not using any wine.
See you next Thursday with a new recipe from BuonaPappa!
