Risotto is a rich, creamy but time-consuming dish. Usually made with arborio rice, which is a short-grained white variety, this version uses brown to boost the fiber and nutrition.

  • Brown rice is nutritious, but I thought that I did not like it-- When I first made it, it was not good because I cooked it the same as white rice. I discovered that brown rice takes longer cooking time and requires more liquid. It is much better when cooked longer-- so I want to add this comment - 9/15/15

  • I've only made risotto once. It wasn't difficult or soupy. I will try making brown rice using the risotto "method" and cook including some grated and some small chunks of sweet potato with it. Then pat it all into a jellyroll pan and bake it for just a bit. Maybe some cinnamon on top? - 2/6/13

  • I make risotto all the time but I've never tried it with short grained brown rice. I will definitely try that next time. I usually cook up a chopped onion first, then add either 1/2 cup red or white wine, reduce it down by half, then add the rice. It shouldn't be gummy or soupy. - 1/25/12
