I really enjoyed the addition of carrots to the risotto, however, being a die-hard arborio rice risotto fan...I think next time I will use it instead of the long-grain. This was a good substitute, but the arborio will add a nuttier flavor and texture. Thanks for a new addition to risotto!
I made this last night....my first time with risotto. Super easy and very yummy. I was out of purple onion so I used plain old brown onion and the results were great. I love that this was made with things I always have on hand, so no special trip to the store. I am sure I will make this again. I originally found this recipe in Everday Food Magazine. Thanks for a keeper.
