White Bean, Spinach and Tomato Risotto

by Amie on June 3, 2009

 This is such a fabulous recipe.  I often recommend it to my clients as as a dinner, and again for lunch left-overs the next day! If you’re simply just looking for a side dish–this recipe can easily be paired with a protein source such as Tofu, Tempeh, Fish, Chicken and Turkey for a well-rounded, healthy meal!

I had trouble finding plain risotto. I found a box of mixed parmesian risotto but nothing plain. I ended up putting it over rice pasta instead which was delicious. But would love to try it the original way. Help please!

Lynne,
I simply make my own risotto. I make rice, then put it into a large wok or skillet with one of the following: Chicken Broth, Vegetable Broth, Mushroom Broth, Beef Broth), cover and let simmer for 45 minutes, stirring often. This will create an amazingly creamy homemade risotto. Hope this helps. Have a great day and thank you for your comment!
