My Grandma D made the most delicious risotto using her famous homemade "gravy" (pasta sauce). So, I am far more used to risotto made with a tomato-type sauce than the traditional version made with stock.
For this challenge I made a Sweet Corn and Walnut Risotto which uses vegetable broth, and a risotto made with marinara and lots of parmesan cheese. Both were delicious and I used the leftover red risotto to make stuffed bell peppers.
The tomato risotto doesn't really have a recipe. I cook the rice in my homemade marinara until it is tender, and then I add a bunch of grated parmesan. This is the recipe I used for the corn risotto, though I used frozen corn instead of fresh, and to keep it vegan I used vegetable broth and left out the cheese.

Superb effort on this challenge I love the idea of Sweet Corn and Walnut Risotto and the stuffed capsicum looks scrumptious, Cheers from Audax in Sydney Australia.ReplyDelete
I've never heard of risotto with marinara, but it sounds delicious - especially as a filling for a stuffed pepper!ReplyDelete
