Risotto goes wild!

It’s friday so its a perfect day to remind you all about our Recipideo Roundup. This week on our facebook pages we shared recipes from fellow bloggers.

Asiya at Chocolate and Chillies (gosh my two favorite things!) makes Spring Green Risotto with peas and asparagus. You can follow her recipe or just add asparagus at the same time as the peas in our Risotto with Peas Recipideo. Its a nice touch if you reserve the asparagus tips. Just cut the tips, blanch and season and set them aside as a garnish.

Isabelle at Crumbblog with her witty writing style has the most unusual combination I have seen. Risotto with Fiddleheads, Fava and Snow Peas. She writes ” ..wading into the crowd of old-timers to pick a bag of [fava] beans is one of my favourite springtime rituals on the Danforth.”

Katie at Little Spatula makes Shrimp Risotto with Sweet Peas and Leeks. Again follow her wonderful recipe or just substitute onions with leeks and add cooked shrimp at the end of Risotto with Peas recipideo.

Next Friday I will share with you my personal favorite. Risotto con Porcini. Super easy, wonderfully flavourful and my ultimate comfort food.

Meanwhile when you get stuck for dinner ideas remember our featured recipideo this month, Risotto with Peas and don’t forget to watch, cook, send and win!!!

About the Author:

I am a little of a great many things. Every experience and every blessing. And even though the whole may be greater than the sum of it's parts, welcome to this little part of me I call "Ita-liana." Raised in an Italian grocery store/food importing company (which explains why wine and olive oil runs through my veins) this is the part of me that is the very best of my Sicilian and Calabrian roots. Watching my Calabrese mother and grandmother cook for the entire family, with not only expertise and ease, but with an over abundance of love, left it's mark. Travelling back to Italy and learning about family history did the rest, while my Sicilian side kicks in almost intuitively. * © All recipes, photography, illustrations on posts by "ita-liana" and "Recipideo" video content copyright Liana Tumino ©
