Vegan Dad is a recipe blog that I regularly check out for inspiration. My boy and I tried his Broccoli Risotto recipe, and we loved the creamy consistency and perfectly crisp broccoli florets.
Risotto is a great “all-in-one” meal, perfect for when you don’t have the patience to make a bunch of sides. It does require a lot of stirring time, so bring a book to the oven if you get bored easily. Remember to have arborio rice handy, since other rices do not absorb liquid in the same manner and can leave you with a crunchy risotto.
I followed Vegan Dad’s advice and made my own vegetable stock because I had the veggies handy and I didn’t want to have to pay for 7 cups of premade broth. It was easy and I think it was worth it. I also learned a new veggie slang word from this recipe: “nooch” is short for nutritional yeast. How adorable!
