Amy’s Bowl Review: Mushroom Risotto

Amy's Mushroom Risotto

Authentic risotto takesĀ a very long time to prepare. Every ingredient has to be cooked slowly, on low heat, in order to ensure that they soak up as much flavor as possible.

If you’re craving Italian comfort food, but you don’t want to go through all the effort, Amy’s Kitchen has an excellent — and gluten free — option, the Mushroom Risotto. While this frozen meal doesn’t quite capture the taste of the risotto you’d eat at a restaurant, it is a scrumptious dish.

This definitely isn’t Amy’s most appetizing-looking meal; the soupy dish resembles bad cafeteria food. That said, the quality of the ingredients is very high. The mushrooms are thick, meaty and fresh, and the arborio rice has the perfect consistency. For the most part, the ingredients are well-proportioned, but there are a few too many peas. If you don’t stir the dish well before you eat it, you might wind up with a spoonful of peas and nothing else.

The dish isn’t loaded with dairy, but it still has a very creamy flavor. With only 8 grams of fat — and zero grams of trans fat — it’s is a surprisingly healthy comfort dish. It may not capture the taste of homemade risotto, but it’s still a great option if you only have minutes to spare.
