This super-delicious vegetarian rice dish may take a little time to make, but the results are worth it. It's creamy, hearty and packed full of flavour.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
Altered ingredient amounts. Used chopped basil instead of parsley; lemon juice instead of wine...only because didn't have either ingredient in the fridge! - 06 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
Used different ingredients. Used a Sauv Blanc, a mix of Swiss Brown, shiitake, button and field mushrooms, added a dash of lemon juice at the end, and used continental parsley. So tasty! - 07 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
But that's the whole point of risotto! Stirring to maximise the full potential of the rice! - 13 Aug 2013 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
