Sweet Potato Risotto

Making risotto takes patience, which is part of why Guy is so good at making it. I much prefer his risotto to any I could get in a restaurant, and he often makes it for special occasions.

This risotto has soft cubes of sweet potato, dry white wine, Parmesan cheese, and fresh oregano.

Thanksgiving Rice

Mom first made this rice for Christmas one year in Colorado, when I was very little. It now defines our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. We could do without the turkey, but we can’t do without this rice, seasoned with allspice and nutmeg, chopped onions, and slivered almonds. In fact, we always make her do a double batch, so there are plenty of leftovers.
