Now that I’m settled into my new apartment, I’m finally back in the kitchen! I was craving risotto and hadn’t made it in a while, so I decided to whip up this sweet corn risotto. My go-to recipe is Giada’s basic risotto in her Everyday Italian cookbook. The recipe is delicious as is, but made even better by adding sweet corn, asparagus or peas.
Up until now, I’ve been too scared to make risotto (silly, I know). I assumed my attempt would result in a mushy disaster, even though I’ve watched my mom cook the rice over a dozen times.
But good news, it turned out just right! The risotto was al dente, creamy and full of flavor, with a slight tang from the lemon zest. I made enough to feed me for an entire week, so whoever wants to come over for dinner, please do!
