Carrot Risotto

Happy New Year!

The first vegetables in 2021 for our Good Friend Good Food Group are carrots.

I like carrots in cakes, bread and soups, sweet and savoury, candied, pickled or fermented.

The newsletter from Valentinas Kochbuch brought the recipe for

Easy to make, if you use the grater from your KitchenAid. This version is vegetarian, but a few slices of boiled ham are also delicious.

Don’t miss the posts from Donna, Ellen, Kayte, Margaret, Nancy and Peggy.

      I love rice so I’m sure I would love this. The mixture with the Parmesan sounds really good. Plus it’s a very pretty dish and you could make an entire meal out of it right? Happy new year!

      I have never had carrots in risotto before, but this looks like a nice combination of flavors. Would like to give this a try. Happy New Year!
