Raspberry & Lime Risotto, for breakfast or dessert.raspberry lime risotto

This all depends on what time you serve it, & with which accompaniment. A generous dollop of silken Greek yoghurt or a scoop of creamy vanilla bean ice-cream. Honey ice-cream works well too. And maybe some toasted almonds.

It takes a little time, but it really is very easy.mango cheeks

Kind of an adult version of rice pudding….hmmmm, that opens up a whole other thought process. What if you were to pour some Bailey’s over at service time? Or Grand Marnier?

You could make it with mango folded through at the end. Or cook it in coconut milk instead. Once you feel comfortable with sweet risotto, you will want to add your favourite taste sensations.raspberry lime risotto

I’ve seen sweet risottos’ cooked with berries, lavender & pine nuts. With fruit, herbs & goats cheese. And with blueberries & white chocolate. Also with salted caramel & poached peaches. Chocolate risotto with strawberries…..the list is endless.

You can get a few more ideas from here…http://www.yummly.com/recipes/dessert-risotto or Jamie does a nice one here…..http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/rice-recipes/sweet-vanilla-risotto-with-poached-peaches-and-chocolate/raspberry lime risotto

Heat milk, sugar & vanilla until simmering, then reduce heat to low & cover to keep warm.

Now cook rice with butter about 2 mins. stirring often. Add zest & juice, stirring until absorbed.

Add about 1 cup of warm milk at a time, continue simmering & stirring. Repeat until all the milk is absorbed & the rice is moist, thick & creamy.raspberry lime risotto

You can add some little lime wedges/slices if you choose & give them a last-few-minutes cooking time (we prefer them just on top as garnish.)

Remove from heat, let stand about 5 mins. then gently fold in half the berries.

Serve with extra raspberries on top, & your choice of accompaniment.

Mmmmm, comfort food at it’s finest :))  Enjoy your sweet risotto making….raspberry lime risotto
