Risotto with Zucchini and Sun-Dried Tomatoes
I have been making risotto quite a bit lately because John loves it and I recently bought a huge box of arborio rice. I had high hopes for this recipe, from Vegan Italiano, but it just wasn't that great. It was on the bland side and we think that had to do with the fact that the recipe says to "finely dice" the zucchini. This made the zucchini get lost in the rice and wash away a lot of the flavor. It is a pretty basic risotto but should have had a nice flavor because it included white wine, onion, thyme, pepper, and basil. It was cooked down in veggie broth and had a half cup of both sun dried tomatoes and zucchini. But, a success it was not!
