Aubergine tastes great paired with raisins (I use yellow ones – which I thought meant they are made from white grapes, but just found out it actually means these raisins have been treated with sulphur dioxide to keep their color, bummer). Still, yellow raisins are a bit sweeter and plumper than black raisins, which works great in risottos and stews.
This recipe is suitable for a healthy food pattern, diabetes-friendly, vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and lactose free. It also contains nutrients that help prevent macular degeneration and diabetes type 2, and is a great option for heart disease patients and diabetes type 1 patients.
Yes, this recipe is also perfect for lazy people – just ditch the bell pepper and enjoy the risotto on it’s own, it’s absolutely delicious!
