Election Day Goat Cheese Risotto


It's election day and who doesn't feel great about living in the U.S.A  where we have the freedom to vote? For dinner tonight, I wanted to make an equally special dish to enjoy while watching the polls ebb and flow, and tensions rise and fall. Risotto is a special dish because: 1- it's time consuming 2- it's rich and comforting and 3- it represents our diverse cultures in the U.S.A, risotto being from Italy. I used goat cheese, peas and truffle oil to enhance my risotto and made sure to toast the arborio rice before cooking. Foodies around the country have a cooking preference for risotto, for example: some prefer al dente rice, some prefer a thick sauce and other like a runny sauce. Personally, I enjoy al dente rice and a slightly thicker sauce. It should be up to you, the chef to decide! As for the recipe, I loosely followed Jamie Oliver's recipe. Being that I failed to measure... I have posted Jamie's recipe for you below:
