Swiss Chard Risotto with White Beans
We got a large bunch of beautiful swiss chard this week from the share. The veins were red and the green leaves gorgeous. I didn't know what to do with it until I searched for some recipes online and came across this recipe for
Spanakorizo aka Swiss Chard Risotto. I happened to have exactly 1 1/2 cups of arborio rice on hand, so I knew it was a sign I had to make this recipe! I decided to add cannellini beans to it to make it more of a main vegetarian dish. It turned out pretty nicely! To add the beans, just add a can towards the end of cooking (about 5 min) and add some extra broth to help warm the beans.
