While the ingredients can vary widely, a typical risotto is packed with artery-clogging cheese and calories. Not so with our Pritikin risotto! It retains all the goodness of traditional risotto -- particularly the vegetables -- and leaves the rest. This recipe also makes great leftovers. Just ladle some in a microwave-safe dish, spritz with a bit of water, nuke for a minute, and lunch is ready.
