I am maybe making this during the weekend, kind of worried tbh

asparagus or peas both work imo

I like peas in everything though.

and asparagus but it's out of season

I just buy two bags of peas every time IO go to the grocery because I know I'm going to be using them. They don't even get written down on the list.

peas/edamame & sweet baby carrots chopped into little discs & baby corn? small stuff that holds its shape is good in risotto i think.

God damn I love risotto. I think it's my favourite food. Well, rice cooked in stock generally (paella, kabsa, pilaf, etc etc etc), of which risotto is perhaps the most flexible and ergo the best.

Here are some risotto variations I have cooked:

• Carrot and pea
• Roasted tomato
• Ham hock and leek
• Asparagus and lemon
• Mushroom
• Chicken
• Fennel and lemon
• Chocolate (with mascarpone and hazelnuts)

i stand for chocolate risotto

imago, Thursday, 7 July 2016 18:34 (two years ago) Permalink

that was the implication, yes

imago, Thursday, 7 July 2016 18:39 (two years ago) Permalink

but i think it could work - pizza does, unsure about pasta, why not risotto. italy is a great country

imago, Thursday, 7 July 2016 18:39 (two years ago) Permalink

yes italy is great.

i might be taking italian citizenship to remain a eu citizen.

good choice

i have two cypriot grandparents but no knowledge of greek ;_; i don't think i'd have the gall to take citizenship in a country i couldn't speak the predominating tongue of

imago, Thursday, 7 July 2016 18:48 (two years ago) Permalink

whereas i do :D

could also get chilean citizenship, and i'll be eligible for canadian in a few years. feel that perhaps that sort of citizenship collection is probably not allowed tho.

♫ Corbyn's on fire / PLP is terrified ♫ (jim in glasgow), Thursday, 7 July 2016 18:49 (two years ago) Permalink

sort of back on topic, i can't think of any chilean restaurants i've been to. surely it has a great cuisine though

imago, Thursday, 7 July 2016 18:52 (two years ago) Permalink

it's ok and there are things i love because of nostalgia but actually nothing out of this world, peruvian is better ;_;

i want to eat risotto for dinner now

♫ Corbyn's on fire / PLP is terrified ♫ (jim in glasgow), Thursday, 7 July 2016 18:53 (two years ago) Permalink

so do i but without the motility to cook it, seems that a takeaway pizza it is

cheers for the peruvian tip tho - and as my gf is a vegan-aspirant veggie i'll trust you to know what's best

imago, Thursday, 7 July 2016 19:04 (two years ago) Permalink

Like all Latin American food would be hard for veggie inclined unfortunately :/

Chocolate risotto is the logical halfway point between risotto and rice pudding, duh.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Friday, 8 July 2016 05:16 (two years ago) Permalink

I make a coconut and raspberry one, it's a rice pudding but with risotto rice, it's amazing

kinder, Friday, 8 July 2016 07:04 (two years ago) Permalink

anybody have a recipe for risotto with garlic scapes

maura, Friday, 8 July 2016 16:29 (two years ago) Permalink

Last night I did carrot and mushroom with mustard and tarragon. Winner.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Sunday, 17 July 2016 05:22 (two years ago) Permalink

Thanks to this thread revive, I will make risotto tonight! I grilled a bunch of summer veg yesterday so that's ready to go; I need to do something with a whole chicken today--maybe grill it, pull off the meat, use bones for a quick stock? Chicken seems kind of wrong in risotto to me but that is just me, obv.

Runner bean and griddled sweet peppers = winner.

Emma has decided she has eaten enough risotto for the rest of her life. I might have to divorce her as i do all the cooking and it is my signature dish.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Friday, 25 August 2017 12:13 (one year ago) Permalink

How is your jambalaya? It's basically just risotto with onions, bell pepper and celery. Good for variation.

Frederik B, Friday, 25 August 2017 12:21 (one year ago) Permalink

risotto has celery

jambalaya does not have parmesan cheese

i could go on

I love all the one pot rice dishes and ofc there are similarities but the jambalaya recipe I have is basically rice cooked in bbq sauce, it's delicious and doing a v different thing

ogmor, Friday, 25 August 2017 12:43 (one year ago) Permalink

That's gumbo?

Frederik B, Friday, 25 August 2017 13:01 (one year ago) Permalink

I mean, fake gumbo, but jambalaya isn't sauce based?

Frederik B, Friday, 25 August 2017 13:02 (one year ago) Permalink

thank u sauce-based jambalaya
