I must admit I like at that - might give that ok now that someone else has said its nice - thanks

I've made a similar one but the recipe came from the Good Food website. I like a bit of chilli or Tabasco added and then add some mozzarella at the end (grated or chopped) it melts and is lovely and stringy

I think it will be ok, you can put whatever you want in I would have thought just as long as the mushroom dont go too mushy. Perhaps put them in closer to the end of cooking?!?!? ;)

Didn't put mushrooms in it. DH and DD didn't like it as there is no meat in and to be honest we all found it tasteless:( For us it would have been better with chilli in. DH put loads of hot pepper sauce on it!

I saw this and fancied it...i love risotto but never get round to making it!! Really must make an effort if it has good feedback :) Thank you!

There is a recipe on the SW site somewhere for beetroot risotto - it is REALLY flavoursome! I whack a tiny bit of white wine in mine also, only about three tablespoons!
