Risotto is one of the most popular comfort food in Italy. It's versatile and flexible as it can be prepared with any ingredient. Keep in mind that the secret to Italian cooking is to use quality ingredients. It's reminiscent of the wonderful risotto dish I had during a long drive from Paris to Venice. It was also where I was told that we are not supposed to mix cheese and fish in risotto or pasta dish.
For seafood lovers, here's a recipe you can prepare as an accompaniment to a hearty fare, or you can make it the main course of a meal. Buon appetito!
 
Ingredients
1 pack mixed seafood 
400g 1 pack risotto rice (arborio or carnaroli rice) 
2 shallots, finely chopped 
2 cloves garlic,chopped 
6 tbsp White wine 
5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 
1 liter fish or vegetable broth 
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice 
2 tbsp butter 
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 
2 tbsp parsley, chopped
 
Steps
 
Prepare seafood mix by defrosting and patting dry with kitchen paper towel.
 
Before cooking the risotto, bring broth to a boil then turn the flame to the lowest setting possible just to keep it warm. Using cool liquid would stop the risotto from cooking.
 
Sautée garlic in olive oil. Turn heat to medium and add seafood mix. Stir and cook for no more than 2-3 minutes. This is to flavor the olive oil. Quickly remove seafood with a slotted spoon leaving all flavored oil on the pan. Place seafood mix in a bowl and cover with foil. Set aside.
 
Using the same pan with flavored oil, on medium heat, add chopped shallot and cook for 3 minutes or until soft. Add rice and stir for 2-3 minutes to coat rice. This seals the rice to maintain its chewy quality. Once the grains are translucent add white wine, keep stirring and let wine evaporate.
 
Here comes the tricky part, as this is the secret to the creaminess of risotto. Add the broth gradually by adding a ladleful of broth at a time. Stir using a wooden spoon. Never let the risotto dry out and do not cover the pot. When broth is absorbed, add a ladle of broth again and then stir gently. keep going for about 13-15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
 
Add seafood mix and it is almost done. Continue stirring for 3-5 minutes until rice is cooked al dente ( tender on the outside but firm to the bite in the center). If broth is absorbed during this time, add broth gradually half a ladle at a time as we don't want risotto to be watery but should still flow a little when served.
 
As a final touch, stir in butter and squeeze in lemon juice.
 
Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Overnight Breakfast Berry Oats

What exactly are overnight oats? These are a no-cook method of making oatmeal. Instead of cooking your oats on the stove, you mix rolled oats with liquid and other mix-ins, and let it rest in your fridge overnight.

Popularly made in nice sturdy mason jars, it’s a quick healthy breakfast or snack option for you and the kids. I sometimes make 5 to 7 jars a weekend so I can grab these anytime for rest of the week.

What’s great about this is you can substitute the ingredients to whatever you feel like to amp up the nutrients or create the flavors you want. I literally could not stop making yummy noises when I first tried this and neither would you!

*makes 2 jars

INGREDIENTS
Mix-ins:
¼ cup berries 
(choose one or mix strawberries, blueberries, cranberries, raspberries)
Base:
1/3 cup yogurt (Greek or plain regular yogurt)
3/4 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup unsweetened milk of your choice
1 tablespoon chia seeds or ground flax seeds
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

DIRECTIONS
Whisk all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. You can choose to add berries whole or chop them up for better blending of flavors. Spoon into a jar with a nice secure lid. Cover and let rest in your fridge for at least 4 hours, or ideally overnight.
Versions:
• Gluten-Free: Use gluten-free oats.
• Vegan: Use plant-based or nut milks, plant-based yogurt, and maple syrup or plant sweeteners like stevia
• Sugar-Free: Drop the sweetener and add 1/2 mashed overripe banana.

Healthy breakfast items like this one don't need to be expensive nor have too much fanfare. The point is make it for your family, your loved ones and yourself with stuff you already have in your pantry or freezer so you all can get up to a filling hearty and healthy breakfast option! Enjoy!
