Risotto Milanese
Though this is delicious even in its simplicity, I give it distinction with a sprinkling of truffle salt. Truffle butter would also take this dish over the top; use it in place of the 2 tablespoons of butter at the end. You can also use this basic technique to try all varieties of risotto in your slow cooker. Want mushroom risotto? Sauté the mushrooms with the onion and eliminate the saffron. Easy.

Butternut Squash Risotto
You can't go wrong with risotto, or roasted butternut squash for that matter, but to make this recipe extra special, I gave the squash a sugary treatment and fired all decadent engines with the risotto. It's not exactly diet-friendly, but boy is it good.

Bulgur Risotto with Swiss Chard
Cooking grains in a risotto style may seem fairly unhealthy because the texture is so creamy and luxurious. However, with the exception of a tablespoon and a half of butter, this risotto is cream-free. The texture comes from the starch of the grains, which get released slowly over time and create a self-saucing effect.

Skip the mashed potatoes this time and make risotto instead. The potatoes in this recipe are simmered in a flavorful chicken stock until perfectly tender, and then are stirred into a cheesy risotto. A handful of arugula adds the perfect sharp bite.
