Authentic Italian-style risotto cooked the slow and painful way, but oh so worth it. Complements bbq meats and chicken dishes very well. Check the rice by biting into it. It should be slightly al dente (or resist slightly to the tooth but not be hard in the centre).
A risotto with good strong - but not overpowering - flavours of mushroom, zucchini, onion and bacon. Watch this recipe being made in Allrecipes Zucchini, Mushroom and Bacon Risotto Video.
A great vegetarian dish that is reeaalllly filling...! Can take some time as the liquid needs to absorb bit by bit to get the creamiest result without burning the bottom of the pot. So make this when you have a bit of time. I also buy pre-sliced mushrooms to save on prep time.
If you are looking for a new flavour for your risotto try this version that includes chicken and asparagus; perfect for a midweek meal.
Although higher in fat than white breast meat, the darker-fleshed chicken pieces – the legs (drumsticks) and thighs – are a more concentrated source of minerals, including zinc and some iron.
