Reviewed Risotto With Yogurt and Peas

Feb 24, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Not the best risotto recipe I've ever made, but it's decent. Turns out very creamy and the peas are a nice addition. I think part of the problem is the yogurt, the end product ends up slightly bitter/sour and was blander than I expected. I had no parmesan rind, so that maybe would have helped boost the flavor some. Again, not bad, but not grea"

As the other reviewer mentioned, this recipe takes longer than it says it will. The recipe itself is pretty good, but not great. The shrimp and veggies are tasty, but the rice/sauce itself is pretty bland and a little dry. I added more soy, but that wasn't enough. I'm not sure what it needs more of, but it needs something. "

Unintentionally overcooked it (mine took more like 1 hour than 2), and it was still really good. The only thing I changed was adding garlic slivers to the fat layer and the onions in the bottom. Very flavorful, as was the gravy. Very good."

Fantastic. Makes more than 2 servings, for sure, but the leftovers will probably be great. Also, if it helps, it took about 12 minutes in my oven (since there's no time specified in the recipe)

I really shouldn't rate this since I had to change so much (chicken & turkey bacon instead of chops, random mix of greens instead of escarole), but I can say that the flavors are very, very good. I was a little leery of the sage with everything, but I was totally wrong. Very flavorful!

Made it with wings. Wings were spicy, but not particularly memorable. Asian slaw dressing was wayy too sour- ended up adding a decent amount more sugar and olive oil. After the alterations, it turned out pretty well.

This recipe turns out even better than it sounds. The only change I made was that I couldn't find lemongrass, so I substituted half lemon juice for some of the lime juice. The salad is especially suprising, I was worried it would be too acidic or spicy, but it was perfect, especially with the coconut sauce on it to tone everything down. Also, I'm...
