Quick Risotto With Carrots and Feta

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Missy Wombat

A Moosewood recipe from the "Cooks at Home" cookbook. My toddler loves this and will eat extremely well so it is a good recipe to use if they are hitting a fussy phase. I don't bother matchsticking the carrots - I just grate them if the meal is just for us. Good quick recipe for a weeknight.

I thought it was ok, but my toddler loved it.
