In Australia it has just turned to autumn, my favourite time of the the year. There is a glut of cheap end of summer produce around and it is not so hot during the day. I love a good risotto, but am mindful of the the high glycemic nature of eating arborio rice. This risotto uses less rice and more vegetables, to create a healthier and seasonal vegetable risotto.
