SLOW COOKER CHEESE RISOTTO WITH SQUASH & KALE
Did you know you can make risotto in the slow cooker?? (I KNOW!!!). My kids and husband love risotto, but I can’t always pull it off on a weeknight. Even though Italians consider risotto the ultimate fast food, the American brain auto-files it as fancy or complicated. It’s not, but it does require some standing and stirring, and on school nights (and work days), every minute counts.
So, gear up your slow cookers, your old grannie hand-me-down or a new fancy number like this one from Crate and Barrel that just come on the scene over here in my kitchen, and is already loved. Then, just follow along the recipe below. Mix in whatever veggies and greens float your boat, and serve with some serious pride—this beauty only took you about 15 minutes to prep, but they’ll never know.
