A good risotto recipe is just about the best dishes you can cook in one pot. But what’s the secret to a good risotto? From how to cook risotto to picking the perfect seasonal recipe, there are a few golden rules: keep the stock hot at a simmer; stir the broth or liquid into the rice, one ladleful at a time; and make sure the rice is al dente, never soggy. Finish with a generous dollop of butter, mascarpone, or crème fraîche for a creamy risotto, and above all, don’t forget to grate parmesan cheese on top.

Our risotto recipes range from an easy mushroom risotto ready in 30 minutes to perhaps the best butternut pumpkin risotto recipe (AKA butternut squash risotto) with brown butter and Gorgonzola out there. Some of our best risotto recipes call for a splash of dry white wine to deglaze the pan, others vermouth. Some are speedy vegetarian risotto recipes for quick dinners, while we also have luxurious seafood risotto recipes for crowd-pleasing bowls of Arborio rice to serve at your next dinner party. Whatever risotto recipe you’re after, we have you covered.
