Risotto is a Northern Italian dish, made with a high starch, medium or short grain white rice. These rices absorb liquids and release starch and this is what gives risotto its creamy consistency.
If you fancy something a bit different you can try using a Rice, Barley & Spelt mix instead of the usual Arborio rice. We used the Gallo 3 Grain Rice, Barley & Spelt Risotto mix and it was AMAZING!…….tastes great cold for lunch the next day too!!
Serve it with a crisp salad for a perfect Slimming World Extra Easy meal.
If you’re a fan of risotto why not try our Syn Free Prawn and Asparagus Risotto.
We use Frylight when ever we need to replace oil to sauté things. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Olive Oil Flavour is perfect for Low Syn Chicken and Mushroom Risotto as olive oil is a key ingredient in Italian cooking.
