Gorgonzola Apple Cranberry Risotto is a delicious vegetarian dinner, perfect for a main dish on a meatless night. It also makes a perfect side dish with chicken, pork, or turkey.
Hello, hello! It is day four of Risotto Week, and this is my favorite recipe yet! Today’s risotto recipe is a perfect way to use apples that are in season right now.
To make this dish, I combined some of my favorite flavors from a spinach salad that I make frequently in the fall. This easy, creamy risotto has Gorgonzola cheese, dried cranberries, and fresh Granny Smith apples. Add a bit of dried or fresh sage to complete the dish, and you have a quick and easy, meatless dinner!
I hope you try this soon, but be sure to Pin it to your favorite Pinterest board, too, because it will be perfect to serve for Thanksgiving. That is when I first made it, a few years ago. Needless to say, it didn’t last long!
Follow my lead and serve this with sliced pork loin that’s been marinated in fresh apple cider for 2 hours. Then grill the chops, and make a glaze for the top. Simply reduce 1 cup of apple cider over low heat, stirring occasionally, until it thickens. Drizzle it over the cooked chops. It is SO good!
Here’s the recipe for the Gorgonzola Apple Cranberry Risotto. Enjoy!
