Yield: 4 servings

My friend Beth came home from a trip to the ocean on a windy, chilly day. Risotto, she said, was just what she craved to warm herself up and “get cozy.” I can still picture her in the kitchen, telling me how she liked to make it. It was an introduction to her world of comfort food. Risotto can be simple  —  mostly rice with stock and herbs  —  or it can be loaded with greens and vegetables, meats, and more. You can use this recipe as a base, adding other ingredients as you’re inspired.
