Risotto is a firm favourite in this house. It’s on the list of ‘Ultimate Comfort Foods.’ There are times, however, when standing over the stove, adding ladle after ladle of stock, is a task too far.
This is easy and quick to prepare. It’s also a big hit with the Teen and her pals. No stirring. No adding stock bit by bit. Perfect for the end of a long day!
