SSFC: Spinach Carrot Risotto

Risotto with spinach and carrots
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I whipped up this risotto using colors from the Irish flag. The spinach, carrots, and onions came from the farmers' market at Dupont Circle. It's a bit of a trek for me to get there on Sundays, and I can't wait for the market near work to open for the season, which should happen this Thursday. It'll be so convenient to shop after work. (Both are part of the Fresh Farm Markets network in the DC metro area). The first day of Spring is this week too. Lots to look forward to!

  2. Looks very tasty! I hope you had a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!

  3. I haven't had risotto for a couple of months which is clearly too long. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. What a wonderful idea, and it DOES look tasty.xxxxx

  5. I love your added green for St. Pat's - very clever. How exciting it will be for you to have a market open closer to you this week. I know how that will make buying local that much easier. Your risotto looks good.
