I asked the lovely Sassy to share this delicious recipe because risotto has always been one of my childhood favourites. Every time I went home, I would ask mum to make me one because her risottos are unbelievably good - so comforting and indulging, just like Sassy's mums! Sassy has come up with the ultimate healthy version which is just as delicious as our mothers…...
"Risotto has always been one of my favourite comfort foods, it has that creamy texture that simply melts in your mouth. Growing up mushroom & asparagus risotto was one of my favourite meals my mum used to make me, but it was hardly naturally sassy material. It was made from white risotto rice, gallons of white wine, double cream and chicken broth. These ingredients , it has to be said were pretty delicious, but they were anything but nourishing. When i started the blog i knew making a hearty and healthy risotto would be something you guys would love, and this natural version is way too delicious for words! Its made from brown rice, bouillon powder, asparagus, mushrooms and an amazing Cashew-Lemon cream that makes this risotto the perfect mixture of salty, creamy, cheesy and fresh.
