With it getting cold, warm up with this luxurious and delicious broccoli “cheddar” risotto
My first risotto recipe! I can’t believe it.
I love risotto so much. It is such a luxurious dish that seems hard but is actually quite easy to make. I wanted to make something super delicious and comforting for the Winter which is why I wanted to do a cheesy broccoli risotto…except there’s no Vegan cheese!
I am SURE that you know what nutritional yeast is, but if you’re a new Vegan or incorporating more plant based recipes into your lifestyle, let me give you guys the downplay of what this glorious item is.
Nutritional yeast is deactivated yeast, and is a significant source of some B-complex vitamins. It’s a great way that Vegans can get their daily B12 which is not a vitamin we can source from plants alone. Nutritional yeast has a nutty & cheesy flavor and can always make dishes super creamy! I love adding it to pasta, popcorn, tofu scramble, avocado toast…the list goes on and on! It is also a complete protein and has no fat.
I recommend the Bob’s Red Mill nutritional yeast as well as Braggs and TJs brand.
The nutritional yeast is what provides the creamy and cheesy flavor of this awesome risotto recipe.
Also, shoutout to my favorite podcast Murder, Myth & Mystery. I am currently listening to the Minisode #26 and absolutely laughing so hard right now. I highly recommend checking them out!
I hope that you guys enjoy this recipe! If you make any of my recipes, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @plantbasedjane so I can see!
