Risotto recipes have never been this easy! We’ve rounded up the simple risotto recipes you can whip up with the contents of your fridge (and pantry).
Risotto is an Italian rice-based dish that involves a slow process of introducing stock into Aborio rice – a variety that produces a lovely creamy finish. It works well with so many different flavours from the classic pumpkin or mushroom to chicken, prawns and so much more. We’ve also included some easy oven-baked versions if you can’t stand the thought of standing over the stove stirring for the whole time.
