Top Rated Arborio Rice Recipes

On a hot summer day, when a big pot of boiling pasta is unappealing, a rice salad is just the ticket.  You can boil the rice hours before you need it and just toss it together with other ingredients 30 minutes before you sit down to eat.

mushroom chia risotto
If you’ve been vegan for some time now and have eaten at a restaurant that serves meat and dairy, you’re probably accustomed to asking the waiter if the chef could make you something that you can eat. Nine out of ten times the waiter will come back and suggest, “Risotto.” It has made me loathe risotto, but I don’t want to. I loved it as a kid and I believe it should be just as good plant-based as it is with dairy butter in it. So I created this mushroom chia risotto to give me the decadent risotto I’ve been craving. Chia seeds are an excellent source of protein, and I love to sneak them into dishes when I can. They also give this risotto a wonderful, thick texture—you can even stack it on a plate instead of putting it in a bowl, if you’d like.

Cape Code Local Chowder
"As the price of lobster can be more on the expensive side, this recipe aims to utilize the entire lobster, including the shell for a flavorful stock that serves as the base for this winter chowder. The recipe takes the lobster, a very special ingredient, and makes it approachable by all" — Executive Chef Daniel Kenney, Sea Crest Beach Hotel

Heirloom Squash Risotto
With so many recipes for risotto out there, it’s difficult to be original. Well, here’s one that’s as beautiful as it is delicious. The earthiness of chanterelle mushrooms contrasts with the sweetness of the squash, and a touch of brown butter at the end adds just the right amount of richness.

Ramp Pesto Risotto
In the context of the question of whether the chicken or the egg (or in this case, the pesto or the risotto) came first, the ramp pesto is the medalist in this recipe. After trying a spoonful of it — raw — from a batch my friend made on his farm, Ralston Farm, in New Jersey,  I decided immediately that I would put it in my risotto recipe that I was developing for the week. Roasted asparagus is mixed in to give the risotto another taste of spring, but the real star of this dish is the pesto. Fair warning, though: Try not to eat all of it straight from the jar before you make the risotto.  Click here to see Rice Made Sexy — 5 Great Dinner Recipes.

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.

Goat Cheese Risotto
Hello all, I am the risotto queen, nice to meet you. Wait, what? True story — that is my name in my kitchen at home. At work, I'm known as "Queen of the Rabe," due to my incessant talk of the beloved vegetable with our recipe editor, Will Budiaman.  So, to bring together my love for broccoli rabe and risotto, I thought what better way to bond the two then a little butter and a bit of formaggio. The result was better than I had hoped — happy faces and full stomachs!  Click here to see Butter vs. Olive Oil: What's Better?
