This recipe serves 4.
- If you don't like sliced cabbage and/or onions, you can roughly chop them.
- You can use low fat (or fat free) cream cheese to give your risotto a creamier texture.
- Carnaroli is the best rice for risotto, less starchy than arborio but easier to cook: it doesn't overcook too easily.
