If you’re not familiar with Italian food you may not know what Risotto is! Risotto is an Italian creamy rice dish made by stirring chicken or vegetable stock into the rice as it cooks on the stove top.
The Italian word risotto literally translates to rice in english. In the United States we eat rice in many different ways. But Italians tend to eat creamy rice that we call risotto to differentiate between the many types of rice dishes commonly consumed in America.
Italians enjoy their rice by cooking it with aromatics and then slowly stirring in the broth until the rice is fully cooked and creamy. The texture of risotto is similar to creamy oat meal. It’s rich, buttery and comforting!
