Risotto is one of my favorite sides but it can be a real pain to make. A few weeks a go I was over at a friends home and her daughter was talking about making her famous Lemon Risotto and I just couldn’t stop thinking about it. The thing was though is I didn’t want to stand over a stove stirring for 30-45 minutes so I decided to take a chance and see what the IP could do… and I was NOT disappointed. It will be real hard to get me back over the stove for risotto again.
I am a big fan of lemon anytime of the year but there is just something extra special about it in the warmer months. This summer, in particular, we are reach record breaking temps almost everyday so a heavy dinner is not sounding so good.
This risotto is filling but it is not too heavy making this a perfect dish for a summer night. I served it with some roasted salmon and it was just right. It would also be great with roasted chicken or grilled shrimp, perfect for a date night. Trust me I will be making this again & again.
