Risotto was one of those dishes I didn't make (or really even try) until after I was vegan. I was officially hooked. I've never had the dairy laden version, but my sweet husband tells me mine is better. Neener neener.
During the the third MoFo, I actually wrote a recipe for carnival squash risotto, seen here. It still gets the most hits of all my posts, which I get a little bit excited about.
On Thursday night, I made another version of risotto out of my trattoria book, a baked tomato risotto.
It just sort of tasted like tomato-y rice. Not that it wasn't good, but come on! Risotto means creamy!
