Description

Organic Arborio makes warming, creamy risotto dishes.

Organic Arborio rice is one of the most absorbent rice you can find.  It cooks slowly to make creamy, delicious risotto dishes.  Risotto is the name of an Italian dish, not a rice variety and this organic arborio rice is perfect for a delicious authentic risotto.

This speciality rice cooks into the characteristic soft consistency of ristotto and absorbs all the flavours of the dish.  One 90g serving of cooked arborio rice is a source of Thiamin B1, Folate and Manganese.

Risotto is a traditional Italian dish which originates in northern Italy and is characterised by its slow cook method and creamy consistency.  It is often eaten as a starter in Italian cuisine.  Our cooking instructions give you a simple risotto recipe to get you started.
