    This was good, but I don't think I'd make it again -- too many other risottos I like better. I calculated the calories at almost double what is shown here ... I thought it sounded too good to be true! - 2/28/09

    you can make this as spicy as you want, I tend to like things hot! I also like to brown and bake the tofu before using it in this kind of recipe. - 2/12/09

    I couldn't believe that tofu does not have to have a bland taste. This was wonderful. I can't wait to make it again. I had no idea I would love artichoke so much! - 5/28/09

    BabyFit lists the EXACT same recipe with the EXACT same nutrition info EXCEPT calories = 256.8. I am rather inclined to assume BabyFit is the more accurate calorie count... - 9/3/08

    Excellent. One thing should be noted risotto is a very time intensive recipe and you should give yourself more than an hour to cook this! I used frozen (defrosted) corn rather than canned to reduce sodium! - 11/28/07

  • This is delicious, and has been added to our regular rotation. Thanks for sharing! But I have to mention that the nutrition info is way off. It only includes 1/2c of white rice, rather than the 2c of arborio rice used. The actual calories for this dish (which for us made 6 1c servings) is 344. - 7/26/12

  • Excellent! (I got 6 servings though.) I added tarragon as rice cooked: it was great! The juice added a good touch of "sweet" balancing the broth very nicely. I doubled the quantity of tofu. My husband exclaimed: Yummy! and that says a heck of a lot!! Thanks for this recipe! - 8/5/09
