Whether you’re a vegan risotto novice, or you’re just on the hunt for some new dinner inspiration, we’ve put the best vegan risotto recipes together in one place.

From creamy mushroom to zingy pumpkin, here are our favourite vegan risotto recipes.

Planted vegan risotto recipes

Here are a few of our go-to recipes that we love to make time and time again. 

Vegan mushroom risotto

This creamy, savoury and super mushroom-y risotto recipe from Val ticks all the boxes. It’s ideal for any chilly evenings that you want to transform into a cosy night in. If there are any leftovers (no judgement from us if not) then it will make a great lunch the next day. It might not be the most hands-off recipe out there, but the twenty-five minutes of stirring will result in a bowl of pure delight.

Vegan saffron risotto

Here’s another great risotto recipe from Val. This saffron-infused dish might just be the creamiest, silkiest and most vibrant risotto you’ve ever tried. Saffron might be the most expensive ingredient on the planet, but a little really does go a long way. It's in charge of making this risotto delicate yet deeply flavoured and guaranteed to wow.

More plant-based risotto recipes  

For when you’ve worked your way through those first tasty risottos, here are a few more recipes to try next.

Vegan pumpkin risotto

This recipe from Spruce Eats is a vegan twist on an Italian classic. The recipe calls for pumpkin, but it tastes great with any variety of squash. It’s also a great recipe for using up leftovers – let the contents of your fridge drive your creativity with this one.

Vegan tomato risotto

This is a great gluten-free and plant-based option for a hearty lunch any time of the year. The recipe from Bianca Zapatka produced a rich, creamy tomato risotto that packs a pinch of zing and bite with every spoonful. 

Vegan asparagus and pea risotto

If you’re after a fresh and seasonal risotto, then this recipe from My Darling Vegan might just be the one for you. It’s packed full of spring greens and all their nutritional and flavour goodies. We think this recipe is one you’ll make time and time again when asparagus comes into season.
