Tasty, and HUGE! No Thai basil at store (and we have an awesome grocery here in AZ) so instead bought ordinary basil--- am uncertain what the taste difference would be. Store did have Thai peppers--little tiny things and wonder if poster meant that instead of leaves? Did add salt and black pepper. I halved the recipe but have enough leftovers for both of our lunches tomorrow. I halved the recipe and dh commented on how small lime was ... so measured its juice. It was 3 tablespoons and put in all of that and found lime taste to be nicely subtle-think I would use 6 tablespoons if I was making the entire recipe unless I learned later that the Thai basil has a stronger taste than regular basil. Garlic amount was perfect, we think. Think this would feed 6. Made for Spring PAC 2012. Thank you for posting boldyreal.
This risotto is packed with flavor and is really easy to make. We used fresh Thai basil from our garden. This is going into my keeper file. Thanks for posting!
Can't go wrong with this, very easy and delicious, I halved the recipe and was really sorry, certainly wont halve it next time!!! Excellent, thank you, boldlyreal! Made for I Recommend tag game.
