Riso Bello gives you the finest risotto in just 12 minutes and comes in 4 different flavours. It’s creamy, luscious and super comforting.
This post is brought to you by Riso Bello.
Most of us associate risotto with fine cuisine at expensive restaurants and very few of us would ever attempt to make risotto in our own kitchens. Just the thought of risotto can scare away even the best cooks. I myself have only started making my own risotto in the past year, and I’ve been cooking for many years. I know! It was always one of those dishes that I thought you had to be Italian to really know how to make and the recipes and the techniques had to be handed down from your Nonna and their Nonna and so on.
But no worries, those times are gone now thanks to Riso Bello and their high quality products. If you want something quick, but still delicious and you want that feeling of eating restaurant style risotto, Riso Bello Pronto is a perfect fit for you. Riso Bello Pronto comes in four flavours—Vegetable, Asparagus, Four Cheese and Mushroom. The great thing about Riso Bello Pronto is that they can be ready and on your dinner table in only 12 minutes. Seriously, it’s going to take you way longer to drive down to your favourite restaurant and order your risotto. You can even spice these up by adding cheese and veggies and your favourite protein
I just made the Riso Bello Pronto Four Cheese and I added some edamame to mine for some colour and protein. The result was a delicious and creamy risotto, perfect to the very last bite.
However, if you are like me and actually don’t mind being in the kitchen for longer than 12 minutes at a time, Riso Bello also has 2 kinds of Risotto Rices, those being Arborio and Carnaroli. To be honest, I’ve used Arborio rice before many times but had only just recently heard of Carnaroli rice. Carnaroli rice is a medium-grained rice that is traditionally used for making risotto, but has a higher starch content and fibre texture versus Arborio rice. I also found out that it’s often described as “the king of rices”. You learn something everyday!
Here’s your chance to experiment with Risotto. Forget about those fears, and impress your guests. Risotto really is the perfect comfort food, and it’s so versatile! You can add all sorts of veggies to them and serve it with your favourite protein. Plus, with Riso Bello, you can’t fail. The brand has been available in Canada for 15 years. That’s a lot of history. And, for all my American friends, Riso Bello is even available on Amazon.com for purchase.
