Naked Easy Risotto with Truffle Oil

Hey there Friends!

Truffle Oil is one of those ingredients that just makes us happy don’t you think so?  Have you ever had Truffle oil on popcorn?  I had some recently and wow it was marvelous!  I just HAD to buy some Truffle oil so I could re-create it 🙂  And that is how this recipe came about, I knew you would want a Vegan Risotto with Truffle oil!  It is marvelous!  And what makes this risotto naked?

Ingredients 🙂

No whipping cream, it will still be creamy with the cashew cream instead 🙂

So a few tips for your truffle oil:

-keep it refrigerated

-use a just bit to flavor your finished recipe, it really is a finishing flavor not a cooking oil.

sliced and ready to go!

When you started your Vegan voyage did you think oh darn, I’m going to miss eating risotto!  Of course, you might also be thinking I won’t miss stirring risotto!

See the steam? sizzling mushrooms!

Cooking it in a skillet, you don’t have to stir it forever, just maybe a couple of stirs.  And you can have your risotto and keep it vegan too.  And another option, want to watch your simple carbs?

Rice gets browned with the oil for a minute before adding the broth

I don’t blame you, use riced cauliflower instead. This riced cauliflower recipe you can swap out the cream for cashew cream to make it vegan. 

Since it is spring here is another recipe using fresh pencil thin asparagus and of course I threw in some mushrooms.. goes so well with truffle oil too, don’t you think so?

What type of non-dairy milk do you use?    It really depends on the finished item as to what type is great for different recipes.

Can you smell it?

For extra creaminess, Cashew milk is superb, it also is good for making lattes as it will foam easily.  Protein rich?- Use Hemp milk.  Flavorful -coconut almond is my choice.

Products used in this recipe:

I used my very well seasoned cast iron skillet,  a cast iron skillet isn't necessary to make this recipe but you'll find you will use one for so many recipes!  

This is the truffle oil I used and it smells so yummy I want to lick it right out of the jar! 

I also used avocado oil to saute the mushrooms and glaze the arborio rice with oil.
