    Missy Wombat's Note:

    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.

      This is a nice dish. This was the first time we'd had carrots in a risotto, and it worked out well. We used dried dill; I'd like to try fresh next time b/c I didn't notice much dill flavor. We used reduced fat feta, and as a result the dish needed extra salt. It also needs a fair amount of pepper, esp if you don't use any parsley.
