Basic Saffron Risotto

This is my base recipe for making any risotto. Various ingredients can be added to the risotto like cubed butternut squash, mushrooms, black kale, etc. to create a unique offering. The saffron is not necessary for every risotto. Simply leave it out if you do not want the added flavor and coloring.

The time it takes to prepare this dish varies depending on the type of risotto rice used and the time that is necessary to cook any ingredients separately. Basic risotto requires roughly 20 minutes preparation time, 10 minutes to cook the aromatics (like the onions) and 14-19 minutes
