This is a very attractive dish. Not exactly quick, but you can't expect that with risotto. The effort is worth it. It could use a little more spice, but then again, I used dried tarragon which is not as flavourful as fresh.
As a positive, this dish was very pretty - colorful, great presentation. However, other than the coconut, there was simply no flavor in this dish.
This was a little time consuming, due to precooking the wild rice. I would add more chicken broth or stock and less water next time to give it more flavor - otherwise it was great. I added chicken, some parmesan cheese and asparagus in mine.
This was a lot of work, but that's risotto for you! My husband commented that it was bland, but I enjoyed it quite a bit.
No flavor to this recipe. We don not use a lot of salt in our food but this needs either salt or butter. I would not recommend this dish.
I made my very first risotto tonight. I made it very simple, substituting beef broth, no white wine on hand. My family loved it :)
