It’s a versatile recipe that can be brought to life and customized in many delicious ways through use of different broths, herbs, spices, and vegetables.\n\nThe key to good risotto is cooking the rice in a rich broth, adding hot broth a little at a time while frequently stirring. This method causes the starch on the outside of the grains to release, making a thick and creamy sauce. The rice grains should still remain “al dente” and intact. So, pay close attention as you cook.\n\nIn this vegetable based version we let the vegetables speak for themselves. Mushrooms add some umami flavor and a meaty texture. Feel free to substitute any type of mushroom you like, fresh or dried. If you are using dried mushrooms make sure you rehydrate them first. We will cook the vegetables in this recipe separately so they remain crisp.\n\n[Enter Whole Foods Market Giveaway]("},{"template":"partial-inline-html","html":"
