Tomato and Goat Cheese Risotto

tomato risotto

I love risotto. For me, risotto is the perfect main course. My husband … not so much. For him, it will always be a side dish. But the great thing about risotto is that it can be either.

This risotto has wonderful flavours, with the tomatoes and tangy goat cheese, so it is the perfect side dish for something like simple grilled meat or fish/shrimp. So my solution is just to serve up a big bowl for me and put something on the BBQ for the rest of the family to enjoy with their risotto.

Although you do need to babysit the risotto, it does make for a quick and simple dinner (especially if you have someone else do the BBQ duty! :)

  1. Delicious! We had it today and while eating I said that this might have been my best risotto so far. My guy also couldn’t stop saying how delish!

  2. Any new posts coming? I really like your blog.

  3. Hi Kristy. Hope you enjoy the risotto. It’s one of my favourites. Ontario is known for it’s wild blueberries, Niagara peaches and Ottawa Beaver tails (there’s a recipe for them on my site here). Fun recipe to make with the kids!
    Enjoyed browsing your site. Your Maine trip sounded wonderful

  4. I came across your site the other day when I was looking for recipes to feature from Ontario. You have some delicious dishes on here – this one in particular. I LOVE risotto! In the winter, it’s a weekly staple and this will be a nice addition to our stack.

  5. This might very well be my favourite risotto, Erin (and I’m a risotto fan, as well). Hope you get a chance to try it!

  6. Sounds delish! I’m always up for any kind of risotto. :)
