Since buying the Thermomix Risotto has become our go to quick meal when we have nothing in the fridge and no time to go. Simply throw it all in, walk away and come back in 15 minutes when it’s cooked to perfection. The best thing about risotto is that almost anything works in it flavour wise, so dig out the last 2 carrots you have, a handful of sultanas and voila you have yourself some dinner! This flavour combo is one of my faves! We deliberately leave out the onion as it doesn’t agree with H our two year old and she LOVES risotto, check out her review!
