Mushroom Risotto

It’s time for a great risotto!  The combined umami of browned mushrooms, fresh basil and caramelized onions come together in this traditional Italian offering.  An additional accent of toasted smoky tempeh finishes the flavor profile.

Serve with a green salad and you’ve got something to celebrate.  Risottos take a little more time, but they’re worth it!
