Meatless Monday: Risotto Primavera

#MeatlessMonday Risotto Primavera |

 My Mom gave me these gorgeous zucchinis from here garden and I knew right away that they would be used for my Meatless Monday dish.  I used zucchini last week too as a substitute for noodles so this week I wanted to do something  a little bit different.  #MeatlessMonday

Using the zucchini in risotto seemed like the perfect use for it and including other veggies like tomatoes and mushrooms made this a perfect combination for primavera! I rarely eat risotto but when I do adding some delicious fresh veggies to it make is so much better! #MeatlessMonday Risotto Primavera #MeatlessMonday Risotto Primavera

You can really add whatever veggies you please to this dish (peas, carrots, broccoli- it would all taste fabulous) I personally wish I had some yellow squash to brighten up a bit but it was really tasty regardless.  😀

  2. It is important to note that you should test the risotto frequently as the broth absorbs to avoid over cooking. You may not use all of the broth and when in doubt, you should undercook it as it will continue to cook as it sits.
