“A really simple risotto recipe, full of flavour but a healthy alternative without any cream so can be enjoyed even on a low fat diet. My whole family love this and we make it regularly, it was just a recipe that came together after experimenting a few times. This serves about 3 with decent portions but is easy to double up for larger groups.”
