A great side for lots of fancy dishes, risotto also counts for a delicious meal on its own. There are lots of variations on the classic recipe, ones that include all kinds of veggies or meats. Or you can try a simple, vegetarian take, with zucchini, parmesan, and goat cheese.




First, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, garlic, and celery. Add water, oil, and cook everything for 8 minutes, until the veggies soften.


Add the zucchini, chili, rice, stock, and basil leaves. Mix, cover and simmer for 15 minutes, until the rice absorbs most of the liquid and has a soft texture. Add mozzarella, parmesan, and season with salt and pepper.


Cook everything for 2 more minutes, while stirring.


Serve it topped with goat cheese and chives!

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper. I’m probably too lazy to cook myself as often as I’d wish, but I always come up with the nicest twists for recipes. I add or remove ingredients, and I feel like a “Master of Ideas.” I dubbed myself that, I admit it. Other than flavors, I’m quite into movies, TV series, sports competitions, hiking in nature, traveling, and learning about other things.
