Risotto hails from the North of Italy where rice is grown in abundance in and around the Po valley.
There are many myths and mysteries around creating this great dish, and our “Free From” Mushroom Risotto is your easy shortcut to creating a hearty, authentic Italian risotto at home. It’s bursting with the flavour and texture of wild Nameko and Champignon mushrooms which we use in this recipe.
Simply add risotto rice, a gluten-free stock cube, water, and bubble on the hob. You can also add your favourite ingredients – from truffles to asparagus, because it goes with just about anything!
Serve with a scattering of parsley and fresh lemon rind, to dial up the flavours.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Be in the know… Italy is the largest rice producer in Europe, with rice grown in abundance in both Piedmont & Lombardy.
