Courgette & Lemon Risotto
This Courgette & Lemon Risotto is another one of my favorite meat free Monday recipes. This recipe takes only 30-40 minutes to prepare and it is super versatile – you can substitute the courgette with broccoli or asparagus if you prefer.
To make this dish, start by sautéing onions and garlic in butter. Add the rice and stir to coat with butter, onions and garlic. Add a ladle of stock at a time and allow it to bubble until it is absorbed by the rice. Once 2 ladles of stock are absorbed, add the courgette and continue to add stock until it is all absorbed. Once the rice is tender, season and add thyme, Parmesan cheese and crème fraîche. Enjoy!
To make my Courgette & Lemon Risotto, you will need the following ingredients:

Bland and hard rice mine was not good with taste only appearance and smell.
Too much cheese but still amazing flavor.
Very flavorful and simple to make this is what i was looking for.
My all time favorite vegetarian meal thankful for the share.
Resturant worthy meal, if you guys ever open one up I'll be sure to go! Love everything you make.
What even is a risotto?
Replaced parmesan for mozzarella and didn't add the lemon thyme, amazing meal.
Cool idea will try it out first time ive ever seena courgette risotto.
Perfect meal when youre on a diet like myself:)
Best dinner I've ever served in my own household!
Bookmarked this page to try out everything else after this.
Italian recipes are the best type for dinner and romantic dates too! Made this for my spouse on our anniversary and cooked some apple churros for dessert too we both enjoyed it very much.
Amazing risotto had it last night with some slices of beef since none of my family including myself are vegetarian.
Had no idea that italians have delicious dinners like this everynight! going to be browsing through the italian section this entire week then on to Mexican.
Cooked it well but still turned out to be mushy and soft not sure what i did wrong to be honest.
Wonderful recipe but kinda expensive, atleast where I'm from.
Used normal cream because i didn't know where to buy the fraiche thing at.
Would recommend this for sure if you love zesty type foods or just things that taste healthy lol.
Dasha always makes the most unique dishes this was absolutely scrumptious!
Not bad but think it needs a bit more spices.
Well done! Thanks for sharing!
