A huge thank you to 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Lana Guyett who has shared this simple risotto recipe with us.

We love that it’s a ‘throw it all in the pot’ style recipe, so you don’t have to stand over the pan for the duration of the cooking!

All those hidden veggies mean it’s a healthy option for the whole family. Perfect served with a light green salad on the side. Feel free to use vegetable stock if you’d like to make this meal vegetarian.
