How to Make Easy Dairy Free Risotto


I am a very lazy cook and so I like to make recipes as easy as possible! 'Proper' risotto involves frequent ladling of stock and constant monitoring. My approach is more 'bung everything in and get on with it'. Authentic Italian risotto is also supposed to be 'al dente' but we like it well-cooked, soft and stodgy!
