Make This Vegan Risotto With Chickpeas and Creamy Cashew Sauce

Oh. My. God. Creamy Vegan Mediterranean Risotto! Enough said.

To try it, is to love it! This creamy vegan Mediterranean risotto has all the right flavors and hits all the right spots! I’m officially obsessed!

For those that have never tried this delectable dish⁠—risotto is an Italian rice dish that is cooked with broth until it has a creamy consistency. This vegan risotto’s creaminess is accomplished using cashews, marinated artichokes, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, salt, and garlic cloves.

This vegan Mediterranean risotto is bursting with flavor thanks to a handful of this recipe’s ingredients. These include shallot, cherry tomatoes, marinated artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, arborio rice, and chickpeas. The recipe also calls for baby spinach, cooking wine, and a number of seasonings and herbs like thyme, garlic powder, and oregano.

My tricks for a perfect risotto every time: Prepare your mise en place so you have all of the ingredients ready when you start. When you’re cooking the risotto, stay by the stove and stir it almost continuously. Also, monitor the heat the whole time so nothing scorches or burns. You want it to cook slowly, and smoothly!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
