Greening Risotto (a la Apron Adventures) August 28, 2009

Filed under: easy,green makeovers,rice — Austin Frugal Foodie @ 7:48 pm

Austin’s Apron Adventurer recently posted a scrumptious sounding recipe for Mushroom Risotto.  If you wanna green it up, try it out with:   Hairston Creek Farm organic onions in place of the shallots, organic arborio rice (check out RiceSelect for coupons), homemade chicken stock, Kitchen Pride portobellos (available at our farmers markets and Whole Foods and Central Market), and local zucchini and tomato.  For the goat cheese, we Texans can choose from numerous local options:  Pure Luck Farm and Dairy, Swede Farm Dairy, Wateroak Farms, and more!  I use either WF365 or CM Organics organic balsamic vinegars for cooking.  They’re both tasty and good values.

A great dish, a green dish!
