Don’t let its reputation intimidate you: making risotto from scratch isn’t nearly as laborious a process as it's often made out to be. And, with results this delicious, the little effort you do have to put in is more than worth it. Here, golden cubes of sweet potato are sautéed with fragrant garlic before adding Arborio rice and stock, and stirring until creamy. But don’t worry about exhausting your arm: while you do have to attend to the risotto now and then, you only need to stir occasionally, not constantly, for the 30 minute cook time. Then, stir in some grated Parmesan and a pinch of oregano and pow! You’re done. Get the recipe:Sweet Potato Risotto
