‘The’ Brown Rice Risotto in the Thermomix

‘The’ Brown Rice Risotto in the Thermomix

Not only do I prefer brown rice in risottos because it is less processed than its white counterpart, it also brings so much more flavour! It gives a nutty richness, making this risotto a hearty and satisfying meal. I love how easy my thermo cooker makes this dish – while it does need nearly an hour cooking, almost all of that time is hands-off.
