  1. 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!

    1. 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!

  2. My daughter’s low Fodmap diet does not allow for garlic. How much is this going to affect the taste?

  3. I thought garlic and onion were not fodmap friendly, likewise the beans. So, why are they in this recipe?
