    Very tasty! I used vegetable broth and cut the recipe in half. I did not have the Parmesan cheese but it was still very creamy.

    I’ve never cooked risotto before so it was probably user error but it didn’t cook all the way. Other than that this was delicious and easy to make!

    This was awesome! Replaced the mushrooms with spinach and added finely freshly grated 1/3 cup Romano & 1/3 cup asiago cheese & 1/3 cup Parmesan! Family thought it was the best Risotto they've ever had!

    I just don’t use white rice, so the use of brown rice sabotaged things a bit. Mainly it greatly increasing cooking and stirring time. End result might be a bit chewy for some, but I enjoyed it and thought it worth the extra time. I used brown balsamic rice, vermouth, portobello mushrooms and beef broth.

    It was brilliant! I doubled the Shitake mushrooms, and added cubed Italian sausage (100g) which was fried separately, and using the oil from the sausage instead.
