We are taking the intimidation factor out of making homemade risotto with our Classic Mushroom Risotto. The recipe uses just 7 main ingredients (with two optional items) and can be prepared in about 30 minutes. The mushrooms and leeks should be cooked and set aside until the end to prevent them from getting mushy. To make the rice creamy, use a pan that is the same size as your burner then gradually add hot vegetable broth, stirring regularly though not constantly. As the rice rubs together it will generate starch and produce a smooth, rich texture. Once you have reached al dente, the vegetables can be added as well as the optional vegan Parmesan. While you must stay vigilant during the cooking process, this is a dish that any home cook can master. Enjoy it as a quick weeknight meal, or as an impressing offering for dinner party guests.

The secret to these Grilled Veggie Skewers is the tangy marinade, which consists of fresh garlic and basil, sweet maple syrup, and the zing of Dijon mustard and low-sodium tamari sauce.

Make sure to prepare at least 2 hours before grilling time as refrigeration helps seal in the flavors of the marinade.
