Saffron Risotto with Vegetables
Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world, with a price per kilo higher than gold! No wonder that it’s the star of our Saffron Risotto with Vegetables, giving the creamy risotto a beautiful fragrance, deep flavour and warm yellow colour. Saffron is also full of vitamins and its antioxidants are believed to protect the body from stress, cancer and infections.
In this recipe, the risotto is made with Arborio rice – a grain that acts differently from its long-grain cousin by becoming deliciously creamy when cooked. The vegetables within the risotto add a perfect contrast to the creamy rice, while the roasted cherry tomatoes add a light and summery feel. It will be more than just the colour of this dish that brightens up your day!
