10 Risotto Recipes

We’re pretty smitten with the creamy, comforting nature of each of these risotto recipes. Whether you prefer yours vegetable-centered or perhaps with something like shrimp or duck stirred in, we’ve got a recipe for you.

Asparagus Risotto

An easy and surprisingly light riff on traditional risotto that manages to maintain all the rich, indulgent, creamy goodness of the Italian classic.

Lemon and Thyme Risotto

A lilt of lemon and hints of thyme dance throughout this simple risotto. The best they've ever tasted.

Spinach and Arugula Risotto

This risotto, straight from Rome, gets its flavor and color from spinach, arugula, and parsley. Its smoothness is a product of butter, cream, and cheese.

Shrimp Risotto

Super-size-me shrimp stud this creamylicious risotto which takes its astoundingly complex taste from simple shrimp shells.

Zucchini Risotto

Delicate, creamy, comforting, and surprisingly easy to make. In other words, risotto perfection.

Risotto Alla Milanese

Lidia—yes, THAT Lidia—shares her classic risotto as it's made back in Italy. Gather your saffron, shallots, white wine, and Parmesan.

Citrus Risotto with Garlic-Chile Prawns

Tangy, hot, sweet, silky. That's what we think of this citrus-scented risotto with sautéed shrimp that melds healthy with satsifying.

Wild Mushroom Risotto

The secret to this intensely flavored risotto? Using chicken stock mingled with the liquid from rehydrating dried porcini mushrooms.

Portuguese Duck Risotto

A dreamy, creamy riff on the classic <em>arroz de pato,</em> this dish call in flavor favors from duck, cured ham, spicy sausage, and tangy oranges.

Whole Spelt Risotto with Butternut Squash

We swear that this whole grain risotto doesn't taste nearly as healthful as it actually is. But don't take our word for it....
