Cooking tips and tricks
This recipe can be made vegan by simply changing a few ingredients. Replace chicken broth with vegetable broth and use vegan Parmesan cheese in place of the regular variety. For adventurous chefs, check out our Smart Kitchen Hub for a recipe on how to make homemade vegan Parmesan cheese!
If this dish is made for children, white wine is a flavorful substitution for the chicken broth. Wine enhances the natural flavors and aromas of this risotto.
As the recipe states, make sure cooking liquid is warm or at least at room temperature before adding it to the bowl. Adding cold liquid can delay the cooking process as vegetables and rice will cook while the broth still needs to warm up, so this could lead to overcooked ingredients before the dish is completed.
Advice for making the best risotto
