Garlic Parmesan Risotto
Ready for a delicious warm winter dinner idea? Are you a risotto lover? This recipe is for you! I know when it’s chilly out I always crave something filling, hot & definitely cheesy. I also don’t want to be in the kitchen all day. Something about the cold makes me just want to curl up & get cozy. Not work away at the stove. So I came up with this delicious garlic parmesan (my favorite flavor combo) risotto recipe that cooks in the slow cooker in just a couple hours. It’s incredibly easy. Let me show you!
It’s so simple to make this delicious risotto recipe. Just measure out your Arborio into your slow cooker. Then add in your other dry ingredients- except the cheese & mix. Then add in your wet ingredients, stir, cover & let cook for 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Add in the cheese at the end & it’s ready to enjoy.
I used Village Harvest Arborio for this recipe. Their “superfino” grade Arborio is the highest quality available & sourced from the Po River Valley in Italy. It’s definitely the perfect foundation of a perfectly cooked risotto, offering a warm, Italian dish to your dinner table. It’s certainly easy to keep a healthy lifestyle in this New Year with Village Harvest Rice & Grains. All rice & grains are natural and unprocessed, making it easy to pair with exciting recipes while staying on track! You know how I love working with ingredients that are natural & unprocessed. That is so important to me.
I love it because so many people think that risotto is difficult. It can be fickle when making on the stove top for sure. You really have to be paying attention. But with this it’s as easy as mix & forget. I don’t think I will ever make risotto the traditional way ever again.
