I created this recipe to make risotto that was safe for my daughter who is extremely allergic to milk products and who was going through a picky stage on eating vegetables. She had it several times before learning that it had zucchini in it! It is a favorite of our whole family. Adding Parmesan cheese at the table works quite well and makes it great for serving people who are on a Vegan diet, a dairy-free diet, or a weight-loss diet. 1 serving is 5 Weight Watchers points and is large. Thanks to Mallina Cashew whose Recipe #32295 Magnificent 1st Prize Risotto was my starting point for this recipe.
