Barefoot Bloggers: Spring Green Risotto

On Barefoot Bloggers this week, Kimberly from Indulge & Enjoy has chosen Spring Green Risotto.  This is a great recipe from the Barefoot Contessa.  It starts with lots of goodies like leeks and fennel.

Ina uses alot more “greens” in her risotto than I did – she calls for asparagus (which I’m already tired of) and green onions (which I neglected to buy).  Even with the omissions, I ended up with a delicious, lemony risotto.

A word of warning about this recipe – I used HALF the amount of pepper, lemon juice, and lemon zest as recommended and, in my opinion, the dish still had plenty of lemon and pepper.  So, be careful there!

I hope you enjoy this recipe (which can be found in Back to Basics on page 147) as much as I did.  It’s another “keeper” from the Barefoot Contessa.  Thanks for the great pick, Kimberly!

It’s Thyme To Eat!

    Your risotto looks lovely. I didn’t read the comments so fixed it as written, but with less salt. It was great.

    Looks good, even with the ingredient changes. I love how risotto is so versatile!
