Risotto is usually made of rice. But you can experiment with other grains and vegetables when cooking risotto! For example, make it out of some shredded mushrooms instead of rice! And to spice things up, add turmeric flavored chicken. And if you’re looking for a side, we can’t think of anything better than a sweet carrot and potato mash!
