    Can I make your risotto without the alcoholic beverage. My husband will not eat anything with alcohol in it?
    Either the turkey, spinach or mushroom recipe.

    • Elise Bauer

      Hi Carol, sure! Just increase the amount of stock and add a teaspoon of lemon juice to the first ladleful of stock you add to the rice.

      • Barbara

        The alcohol is completely evaporated and what remains is only the taste. That’s why you boil it.

        • Elise Bauer

          Hi Barbara, actually most, but not all of the alcohol evaporates when cooking. There are many valid reasons to avoid alcohol which is why it does help to have alternatives.

    Delicious! Wouldn’t change a thing. I served it with grilled salmon and a loaded salad.

    I’m allergic to gluten, dairy and eggs. This recipe is excellent and tasted so good even without the cheese. Thank you for this.

    Mom used to cook rice and spinach easy recipe, half a century ago, minus cheese, the spinach had to be washed several times as there was no baby spinach washed and ready loved it.

    I’ll make it with frozen spinach. I’ve been thinking of green risotto ideas: too early for asparagus. Here’s the answer – thank you.

    Will frozen spinach do? I’ve got some in the freezer… Thanks in advance!

    This Spinach Risotto is great for St Patrick day!

    I would add some mushrooms and serve as a side dish with fish. I’m hungry just writing about it.

    I always keep several bags of risotto in my cupboard and I would’t be Italian if I didn’t.
    I also often keep a bag of spinach in the fridge too which means risotto with spinach is always on my weekly menu. I have recently started whizzing the spinach which seems to make the risotto creamier.
    Your recipe and photo is mouthwatering!

    I’ve had some risotto rice in my cupboard for a while but I haven’t known what to do with it, but now I know what’s on the menu – this looks so yummy!

    What a gorgeous dish, Elise! I love all the savory, yet bright flavors in this risotto! It’s perfect for today – and any day!
