Hearty risotto dishes are a great way to warm up during those cold winter days and can be prepared in so many variations from the traditional risotto recipe.
This easy gluten-free and vegetarian risotto is made with Jerusalem artichokes and mushrooms sauteed with fragrant garlic, thyme, and chives. Crunchy walnuts pieces and low-fat crumbled feta add a perfect finish to this main dish.
Jerusalem artichokes are a versatile ingredient in many recipes and you can use them as a substitute to potatoes while adding extra flavour. They are also a great source of fibres and iron, providing 20% of iron in 100g.
This mushroom risotto is prepared without wine and we have replaced parmesan with the super healthy nutritional yeast to reduce calories and increase the intake of B group vitamins.
The addition of feta also boosts the protein content of this dish for a fully balanced meal.
In fact, this healthy risotto is high in fibres and proteins and low in saturated fats, with 500 calories per serving. If you want to discover more about its nutritional properties, just click on the nutrition tab above.
