Risotto is a great comfort-food dish, yet it also manages to be light enough for warmer spring or summer evenings. Risotto is also a great main course if you need to eat gluten free. Just make sure your broth is a gluten-free brand. And if you're feeding vegetarian friends, be sure to use vegetable broth rather than chicken broth.

3 tsp Bouillon

  8. 2 cloves garlic, minced

  9. 1 tsp mixed dried herbs

  10. 6 ounces cremini mushroom, sliced

  11. 6 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced

  12. 1 cup Arborio rice

  16. Preparation:

  17. Empty broth into a 2 quart saucepan and heat until simmering. Keep warm.

  18. Heat oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Sauté onions and garlic until softened and fragrant. Sprinkle dried herbs, followed by mushrooms; sauté until they release their juices.
