Risotto, the traditional Italian creamy rice dish, may be too rich for some, with ingredients like butter, oil and parmesan cheese in the mix.

While not totally traditional, it’s equally delicious and will lift your energy instead of sap it. It cooks up quickly and is a versatile side dish that complements just about any main.Creamy Vegetarian Risotto Recipe with Vegetables on White Plate | Vitacost.com/blog
