Used broth instead of water, but still turned out bland.
This recipe unfortunately didn't make the cut for this family. We ate what we could for dinner, but won't be saving the leftovers. The sweetness of the sweet potatoes never fully came out and ended up tasting very root-like. I used chicken broth instead of water for the risotto, hoping it would boost the flavor profile, but even so, it didn't taste that great. If I were to try this again, I would make the risotto using chicken broth, then add roasted chopped sweet potato to the dish. I think that would help make this dish warm , comforting, AND tasty.
I actually find this recipe quite tasty and I don't do bland at all.. I always use chicken stock made from the Better than Bouillon Reduced Sodium Chicken Base and plenty of fresh oregano and parm. Maybe that is the difference. I also use yams rather than sweet potatoes just because I like them better.
we followed the recipe and, like other reviewers, found the dish a bit bland and tasteless! we believe that this would in fact be a perfect base recipe, for example add some more 'erbs and veg. (we may have also burnt the risotto, which probably didn't help!)
This recipe on its own was very bland. We added 1/4 cup of feta, a 1/4 cup of parmesan, more salt and pepper, and spicy garlic spice, and it was delicious, but before that we weren't impressed. Needed more flavour.
Blah. That's what this recipe tasted like. Not bad, just not very tasty and not worth my time and effort to make again. My kids love sweet potatoes, but they didn't care for this dish.
haven't tried it yet, but it looks so good.
this is a good basic risotto recipe; better the swap the water for warm broth (chicken or vegetable) and it comes out with much more flavor. Frozen chopped sweet potatoes save time and effort as well!
this risotto recipe and the edamame one are both very good.
