As far as comfort foods go, risotto is right up there when it comes to a filling but nourishing meal. This simple variation can easily be served as a vegetarian main. Adding chopped button mushrooms greatly complements the ingredients and adds protein, or serve alongside a portion of grilled chicken or meat. It has a rich, creamy essence, but with the addition of fresh greens and the tangy flavour of lemon, it doesnít feel heavy or stodgy.
It's a great meal to cook as a family or with friends, and freezes easily and well if there is any left.
