Risotto

Collection of risotto recipesjump to the recipes

Risotto is an Italian dish made from a short grain rice like Arborio. Hot liquid is added in small batches to the rice while constantly stirring and is allowed to fully cook in before adding more, resulting in a creamy rice. Because of this process it takes longer to cook and is a bit more labor intensive than other rice dishes.

Risotto is very popular in restaurants in a variety of flavors such as pumpkin, mushroom, seafood (shrimp, scallops, lobster) and vegetables such as asparagus, leeks, and corn. Other grains can also be used for a non-traditional risotto such as barley or couscous.

Tips: chicken stock is the most common liquid used in risotto but it can be high in sodium. If you wish to reduce the sodium content of these recipes use a lower salt chicken broth and add salt (or a salt substitute) to taste. There is often additional salty flavor from the other ingredients (like any added cheese) so it's easier to add salt as needed when starting with a less salty broth.
