I happened to have some leftover rice the other day, I made this recipe, and it turned out absolutely tasty. I used short-grain brown rice, which made the risotto more sticky. It was very quick and easy to make, a great idea to use up my leftover rice, and a nice change from making fried rice! Quickly put everything together, and simply delicious!
