This homemade risotto is so creamy you will have people coming back for more.


Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 Cup Arborio rice
  • 1 Litre Vegetable stock
  • 1 Medium Sweet potato peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 1 Small Brown onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup each Canned corn and frozen peas
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

Method

  1. Heat oil in a medium size pot, add onion and sweat it for a minute, add rice and stir to coat grains with oil, stir for another minute, add stock one ladle at a time when the rice has absorbed liquid.
  2. Add sweet potato to rice, continue to add stock and stir frequently so rice won't stick to the bottom of the pot. When the rice and potato is almost done, add corns and peas, when they are heated through, stir in the cheese.
  3. Turn off the heat and let the risotto stand for 2 minutes. Serve immediately.

Notes... When I'm looking for comfort food, this simple homemade risotto is right on top of the list. This straight forward cooking delivers a creamy dish with the sweetness coming naturally from the sweet potato and complimented by the saltiness of the parmesan cheese. You can also add some roasted pine nuts.

  • I was just saying the other day we needed to make some fried rice or a good risotto to use up the rice we have left over. This is a brilliant recipe and so simple.

    • I’m humbled to hear this from you, and I got to tell you it wasn’t smooth sailing for me at the beginning to cook risotto, but years of practice makes it perfect :)
