Risotto is one of the best dishes you can make with rice. There are many different varieties of risotto and we have several wonderful choices to still keep it allergy-friendly and amazing.
The Farr Better Risotto is just that, Farr Better, and here is why…
Quicker and easier cooking
I wanted to make this recipe easier than many of the other ones out there without losing the flavor or texture of this dish. In our test kitchen, we put all the ingredients into a baking dish and bake it. That’s easier than managing this dish on the stovetop by adding broth, one ladle at a time. It’s fun to bake the Farr Better Mushroom Risotto, serve and eat. Easy, Peasy.
