Risotto is a classic Italian preparation of rice simmered with cheese, milk, cream and pepper. In this sumptuous Spinach and Carrot Risotto, veggies, tomato purée and mixed herbs enhance the classic risotto by adding more crunch, tang, aroma and of course, flavour. Always serve risottos fresh off the pan, as the cheese tends to become gummy as it cools down. Also, make sure the rice is fully cooked as a risotto is supposed to be slightly mushy, with all the ingredients gelling well together.
