6 Ingredient Spinach Risotto

We had no idea that this vegan spinach risotto would be so popular! After a long day at work, the refrigerator was almost empty as the shelves were nearly bare. What I could collect was 6 ingredients which might be used to create a tasty risotto recipe: spinach (or any green vegetable), sun dried tomatoes, an onion, and nutritional yeast.

The next time I make this risotto recipe, I might add some Parmesan cheese instead. It would be even better if I could use nutritional yeast instead.

  • Prepare and heat the vegetable stock.

  • Remove the pot from the heat and finish by adding the chopped sun dried tomatoes plus nutritional yeast or Parmesan cheese, then stir well.
