Lately, when I want something hearty and satisfying for dinner, but don’t exactly want to spend too much time and have too many things to clean up, I make risotto.

Risotto is one of those comforting, heart-warming foods which can be made in one single pot or skillet, and as you stir the ingredients and wait for the rice to cook, the house starts warming up bit by bit. When I started to cook a few years back, risotto was one of the first recipes I learned in cooking class. Begin with a simple base recipe and later add ingredients as you deem fit, until you’ve got a risotto recipe that’s yours to keep.

Here are 7 warming risotto recipes for dinner. Browse through them, pick your favorites, and let’s cook risotto tonight!
