7 Tips for Making an Excellent Vegan Risotto

Risotto comes from the Italian word for ‘rice’ (‘riso’). It has an augmenting suffix ‘-tto’ added that makes the word ‘Risotto’ literally mean ‘big rice.’ And big rice is a perfect description of this famed Italian dish that delivers big flavors, creamy nourishment and total satisfaction.

But cooks often make risotto incorrectly and it turns into a gruel, swimming in way too much butter and cheese. Vegan cooks strip away the butter and cheese but that often leads to a flat tasting and dry rice dish without character. Both are common mistakes…and both are not a true risotto.
