Recipe Sweet Corn Risotto

The recipe basically was of mushroom risotto but as my kids don’t like mushroom much I decided to make it with corns; and must tell you that it tasted great. The recipe was of a risotto made with chicken stock but as I am a vegetarian I have modified it a bit. For this recipe I used Rice, Spinach and Corns basically, you can also use mushrooms if you want.

I cooked corns separately and if you are using mushrooms you have to cook them separately in olive oil. Rice is to be cooked and then mixed with spinach leaves and topped with the cooked mushroom or corns. It’s best to serve it hot and fresh.Recipe sweet Corn Risotoocorns risotto
