The Italians make risotto with a special variety of rice that is called arborio. I have used bulgur wheat as a substitute for rice in this recipe to enrich this delicacy with fibre to help control blood sugar levels after a hearty and satisfying meal. The colourful veggies in this dish makes them extremely appealing and also irresistible due to their aromatic flavours while being cooked. This risotto is a storehouse of nutrients like protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, calcium as well as fibre. Cook this dish as close to the serving time as possible, as it is best when freshly prepared.

I like bulgur wheat and I loved this risotto made with it also... Without rice, cheese and cream, this modified version of risotto is a great addition to a diabetic diet.
