inter comfort food 😊
🌾On cold grey winter days most people start to crave heavier more calorie dense meals - I'm pretty sure it's an inbuilt survival instinct to tell the body to build up food stores for the cooler months!!
🌾Finding healthy options can be a challenge sometimes when you just want carbs - often creating a twist on a familiar food can be a great trick
🌾This mushroom and oregano risotto is made with brown rice rather than white, and is baked - no stirring needed!
🌾Served with a big side salad (leaves, toasted seeds, capsicum, olives, sundried tomatoes and a bit of feta) and some brocolli, means a satisfying healthy meal full of nutrients that still hits the spot ;-)
🌾I used parmesan (we eat about 95% vegan but still have occasional cheese), but you can switch this for a vegan butter or cheese to be fully plant based if you wish 😊
