This light-tasting, healthy spring risotto is the perfect way to welcome spring! It’s made with fresh, seasonal veggies, such as asparagus, zucchini and sweet peas. The nontraditional method of preparing this risotto means it requires less attention (i.e., standing at the stove, constantly stirring) and makes for a lighter, fresher flavour.
Risotto is a staple meal in our home, most often during the winter months when we crave hearty, comforting meals. Having said that, rice dishes, including risotto, lend well to fresher and lighter renditions, such as this healthy spring risotto.
The combination of crunchy peas, earthy asparagus and sweet zucchini mixed with salty capers, rich tomato paste, and aromatic spices makes for a delicious, healthy meal that is packed with flavour.
