This does not follow the rules of making a risotto. I am cooking for the body and that is all. My body has its own constitution and so it is a little bit bland and light. My blog points towards this direction. Enjoy.
Note: I drizzle the risotto on top with a pesto sauce, and garnished it with sesame seeds, chopped parsley and a little bit of orange zest —JuneRoca
