Creamy Vegetable Risotto

As the nights get colder, we all start to crave those warm and comforting dinners. Risotto is definitely one of those dishes that warm the soul and make it feel cozy. This risotto is very easy to make and always works. It reheats very well, so it’s perfect for lunch the next day or for a meal prep dinner for a few days.


  • 1 Tbsp vegan butter/ extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 red capsicum/bell pepper, chopped

  • 1 carrot, chopped

  • 5-6 sage leaves, chopped

  • ¼ tsp of salt

  • 1 cup of frozen spinach or 2 cups of fresh spinach

  • ¼ cup of vegan white wine (optional)

  • 4 cups of good quality vegetable stock/broth

  • 1 cup of risotto rice

  • Salt, and pepper to taste

  • Vegan parmesan to serve

  • Fresh basil to serve


  1. Prepare the ingredients: peel and chop the carrot and onion, chop the capsicum/bell pepper, mince the garlic.

  2. Melt the butter in a large pan. Add onion and garlic and sauté for 3-4 minutes, or until translucent and fragrant.

Notes: It has a wonderful texture as is, but if you want it extra creamy, incorporate a Tbsp of vegan butter just before serving.
