Ridiculously Versatile Risotto

January calls for – no demands – comfort food. It’s just one of those unwritten laws of the kitchen that is unquestionably followed. To me nothing says comfort like a steaming hot bowl of carbs, in this case risotto. This large grain is incredibly versatile – savory or sweet, simple or complex, it has it all. Here are twenty recipes to get your tastebuds popping. (Click on the image to be taken to the recipe.)

    I just love making risotto and of course eating it. There is something meditative with all that stirring.
