Delicious. Followed the recipe to the letter and it was bright and clean tasting. Served it with a slow roasted salmon dusted with smoked paprika. Makes tasty leftovers as well.
I've made this three or four times now, and I am still not convinced. I've tried 2 different types of risotto rice (arborio and carnaroli), and have followed the instructions carefully. Still, I don't get the "bright" flavor I expect from mint and lemon. And, it's not quite as moist & creamy as I imagine risotto to be--I always end up using the full 6 cups of stock. Will try the sage & butternut squash one now to see if that's any improvement.
Love this. Perfect side dish for the first warm days of spring! Followed recipe exactly and it turned out perfectly.
I have made this recipe several times, and it quickly became one of my family's favorites! It's a delicious mix of light flavors and textures. We enjoy it most with grilled shrimp or chicken. (Also, this was my first attempt at making risotto, and I must say the step-by-step instructions were perfect!)
