Risotto with a Greek twist. Wonderful served with grilled salmon or trout.

Top Review by Chickee

A really light tasty side dish, easy to prepare and great for my Greek styled dinner party. Leeks were really expensive so I chopped up some green onions instead, and I used vegan chicken style stock as I'd run out of vegetable. Love the parsley at the end. It was a side to moussaka and happily devoured! I liked not having to stir all the time, essential when preparing other dishes! Thanks!
