Since I've returned from vacation , I can't seem to get into the cooking mode. Last night I decided to make risotto and clean out the cupboard at the same time. Since I did not have a shallot, I chopped up a small yellow onion and sauteed it in 4 tbsp. olive oil along with a handful of sliced baby bella mushrooms. After about 7 minutes I added the rice and a chopped clove of garlic and pretty much then followed my basic recipe. In the last 5 minutes I added the rest of a bag of frozen peas (about 1 cup) and the remains of a bag of frozen baby lima beans (about 1 cup). It turned out so good!! I love risotto more than any other food and it really is so easy easy to prepare.
