This glorious mushroom risotto
Mushroom and risotto are just a match made in heaven. You can use absolutely any kind of mushroom. You can sauté them, or you can fry them. You can make it 100% vegetable-based or you can beef it up with a meat-based stock. You can make it super fancy with a drizzle of truffle oil, or you can keep it humble with some home-grown parsley. However, you want to dazzle, mushroom risotto has all the razzle!
This succulent prawn risotto
Prawn risotto is such a decadent yet simple dish! You can leave the prawns whole, or you can dice them up.

If you’re not sure where to begin, this Jamie Oliver prawn, mint and pea risotto is a great place to start.
This vibrant orange dish is a treat for the eyes as well as the taste buds. Delectable creamy risotto baked in an oven-safe dish takes so much of the work out. Impress your guests further with some crispy sage on top!
