This stuff is great! Is super quick and easy to cook. All you need to do is boil water! Also, half of the cooking is just the risotto resting in the saucepan, so you have time to finish whipping up the rest of a quick meal. I paired with chicken sausages in onion gravy. Great, tasty, healthy, and quick side!

For how simple it is, and being a vegetable based “rice” this is incredible! Definitely recommend!

I love this risotto! It's high in protein and fiber, and low in net carbs. Healthy grain! I'm an avid backpacker, and this risotto is great for the trail. Easy to make. Delicious!

I'm not sure what the selling price will be on these since I got them for free in exchange for a review. I have had other risottos from pouches before which were probably in the $1.50-$3.00 price range at a grocery store. I'd be willing to spend more than that on these pouches and I'm sure they'd cost more than that anyway. Given they are made from vegetables and gluten free and so on... I suspect they'll be more like $5 or perhaps more per pouch.Either way I found it super simple to make with the instructions of just boiling water, then the risotto for a few minutes and then letting it rest with the heat off. It wasn't too strong of a black pepper flavor but certainly tasted good and not bland in my opinion.When compared with conventional risottos I would say that this grain size is going to be smaller than what you might be used to. I will certainly keep this brand and product in mind for the future to stock my pantry with some long lasting, easy to prep meals or even something I can do when camping!I got these around Feb 2021 and my pouches are stamped with a "Best By 12/04/2021". So maybe not the longest shelf live I've seen in something like this but still plenty of time for my family to wait and enjoy these.
- EAEric and Liz A.I recommend this productRated 4 out of 5 stars2 years agoPretty good, flavor isn't very distinctive
This product is pretty tasty. For something made mostly out of legumes they certainly made it seem very similar to rice. That bit is impressive. The added "cracked pepper" flavoring didn't impress me much. I like it all right, and my family gladly ate it, but it just didn't taste like much really. Maybe in the future I'll add some olives or other veggies to spice it up a bit.
