Are you a fan of risotto? In this vegan risotto recipe, all flavors are balanced. It's umami from the shiitake mushrooms, creamy from the cashew butter, and delightfully chewy from the brown rice. Risotto with mushrooms and sweet potato may not be traditional Italian, but you can taste the finesse of a real chef. If you can't find umeboshi paste in the organic store, this product really completes the dish, so make sure to use whole Japanese umeboshi at least. An Italian risotto inspired by Japan, made by a Spanish chef. Fusion at its finest!
