Tomato Risotto

I started the year off with the Veganuary challenge and while I didn’t manage to go completely vegan I have been largely meat-free since January. I have been trying out a whole lot of new meat-free recipes and we recently made our very first risotto and it was absolutely delicious.

I love the simplicity of this risotto. It uses a few simple but flavoursome ingredients. Perfect for those nights you just don’t feel like cooking.
