Smoky Leek Risotto

Irresistible Leek Risotto: this creamy risotto with leeks, roasted cumin and cuban spices  is a smoky sensation. Serve it on it’s own, or as a side dish. Either way, it will be the talk of the table.

Smoky Leek Risotto

What’s more comforting or luxurious than a silky serving of risotto?

Arborio rice is the glass slipper of the grain family. It transforms a plain rice pilaf into a fabulously rich risotto dish with a creamy, yet firm texture.

Risotto makes a lovely canvas for any flavor. This risotto with leeks is bright and earthy, with deep smoky undertones from McCormick Roasted Ground Cumin and Cuban Seasoning.  The vibrant spices make this leek risotto a standout at the dinner table.

    I have never seen McCormick’s Cuban Seasoning before. I guess they don’t sell it here in my area of NJ. I would never think of using cuban seasonings in risotto. Sounds very good though. I adore risotto and make it at least once a month. I want a whole bowl right now.
