Slow cooking is the easy way to cook a hassle-free risotto. This vegetarian risotto is simple yet delicious, and has become a healthy family favourite. I usually prefer recipes where you can just add everything straight to the slow cooker, but the preparation for this dish really is minimal.
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.
Used different ingredients. Subsituted red pesto for the green, and sweetcorn for the green beans, and added mushrooms in. - 15 May 2011
I had to quickly find a vegetarian recipe for my slowcooker and as a carnivor was not at all sure what to pick to satisfy my veggie friends, but this dish was really well received and even the kid who normally doesn't eat rice had seconds! So full marks very tasty!! - 31 Aug 2013
