Spring Green Risotto Recipe

Once a week, I create a new recipe for my blog, An Officer and a Vegan. I first made this risotto when I needed something cheerful and comforting. It's fantastic with asparagus, zucchini or summer squash, but use whatever veggies are in season. —Deanna McDonald, Kalamazoo, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 17, 2014

This is a great simple and fresh risotto. I'm always looking for new risotto ideas and this one lightens up a classic risotto and makes it a lovely spring dish. It is also so versatile because you can take out and add veggies that are in season. It grows and changes with the seasons, which is always something I look for in a recipe. You don't get bored that way.
