(Almost) Homemade Risotto with Fennel, Sweet Baby Broccoli & Mushrooms
I slightly cheat by using Trader Joe's "Mushroom Risotto" as the base for this recipe. By adding additional fresh vegetables- I made it "my own." Only 30 minutes to make!
1 box Trader Joe’s “Mushroom & Herb Risotto”
1 cup fennel bulb, thinly sliced
1 cup sweet baby broccoli tops from Season & Steam®, prepared then chopped
1 cup fresh crimini mushrooms, chopped
3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- Follow directions on box of TJ’s Mushroom & Herb Risotto- using the Chicken Broth Option
- While Risotto is cooking: Microwave fennel bulb and mushrooms on high for 1 minute -each vegetable separately in a bowl to blanch. Then drain any liquid from the bowl by covering with a paper towel. Set aside. Prepare the Season & Steam Sweet Baby Broccoli; chop tops and set aside. Continue to finish making the Risotto.
- Once Risotto is boiled down and absorbed all of the broth: Add directly to the risotto all 3 veggies: Fennel, Sweet Baby Broccoli and Mushrooms.Stir and Serve!

Extremely easy to make and ingredients can be added/adjusted to your preferences. This flavorful risotto recipe is a perfect way to get non-vegetable eaters to get some vegetables. Would recommend this for a quick and lighter side dish.
