Quinoa and White Bean Risotto with Brassicas

White Bean Quinoa Risotto from the First Mess Cookbook

One of the things that excites me most about food, besides eating it, is the sharing of ideas and inspiration. One recipe could lead to 100’s of variations which in return, could lead to 100’s of more variations. There’s an element of play, which I always encourage.

Laura from The First Mess is always coming up with new combinations and ways to cook with regular pantry ingredients. Her new blog-titled book, The First Mess, just hit shelves. If you are into plant-based recipes, which if you’re reading this site, I have a sneaking suspicion you are, I cannot recommend her book enough.

This quinoa risotto was one I tested and I knew the moment I tasted it, I wanted to share it once the book launched. Laura uses a white bean puree mixed with a bit of lemon and nutritional yeast to form the creamy risotto base. Best of all, thanks to quick cooking quinoa, this risotto is much faster than the traditional rice-based version!
