Tart n' Tangy Lemon Goat Cheese Risotto
Tart n’ Tangy Lemon Goat Cheese Risotto
September 12, 2015
I would like to think that even Gordon Ramsay himself (Hell's Kitchen reference, for those that don't watch) would approve of this lemon and goat cheese risotto. I may be delusional about that, but it sure is a delicious side dish for brightening up any plate. This tart n' tangy dish is probably not for those picky eaters, but adventurous eaters will enjoy the bright, tangy lemon flavor complement by the salty, creaminess of the goat cheese. Make sure to serve this lemon and goat cheese risotto with a fantastic main dish so it won't overwhelm.
