Risotto with corn, shiitakes, and basil
Vegetarian, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free
A good stock is the foundation of every great risotto, and making one from scratch is easier than you might think. In this summery version, to echo the flavors of the vegetables in the dish, Chef Justine cooks a vegetable stock of corn cobs, leek tops, and mushrooms. Together, they deepen the risotto’s flavors with very little effort.
