Vegan Risotto Recipe
If you’re a vegan eater in a non-vegan family, the meals surrounding holidays can be stressful. Truly they are not meant to be. The food is supposed to add to the togetherness of the day. But more often than not if the gathering is not at my home, I am destined to eat a plateful of side dishes. Fortunately for me, my folks and siblings really have made a great deal of effort in this department lately.
This year for Easter my mom approached me about the menu. I suggested something easy from her kitchen as she is known for making enough food to feed ten army’s plus the neighborhood. I offered a side dish since it is not customary to make the main course when you are not the host. But I had something sneaky in mind.
A Vegan Risotto Recipe! It’s brilliant really. Rice, some veggies..it’s a side right? Ah but risotto can be beefed up (in a non-beef way) quite easily to become something more substantial…a main dish even. We see it all the time in Italian restaurants. And this is how my sneaky little plan all unfolded.
