As a big, big fan of risotto (it’s one of my absolute favorite dinners), I’ve experimented with many different variations.
And quinoa is right up there at the top as one of my favorite grains for risotto dishes.
Here are the two main reasons why quinoa risotto is so great:
- Quinoa really absorbs all of the white wine and shallot-infused olive oil in this recipe, just drinking it in. Quinoa is known as a “healthy” grain, but it becomes so rich and flavorful in this risotto!
- Quinoa cooks really quickly (in about 12-15 minutes). So, unlike a traditional rice risotto, this quinoa dinner is on the table in under 30 minutes.
What’s wonderful about this quinoa risotto is that it’s a healthy vegetarian dinner that’s also addictingly delicious, savory, and filled with flavor.
I love sharing this particular recipe because, to me, this quinoa risotto is the best of both words.
It’s a meatless meal that’s filled with healthy ingredients.
But it’s also richly flavored and totally delicious.
