Arborio risotto rice 500g


Availability: In stock

Organic white arborio rice. With its pearly, short, fat grains and starchy coating, this rice absorbs lots of fragrant cooking liquid and gives a good, firm bite and a creamy finish.

This is the perfect base for risotto: you’re sure to find a risotto recipe to suit your veg box contents in our collection. Arborio rice is also good for paella, thrown into any one-pot dinner for a bit more substance – try Basque chicken and chorizo –, or used in place of pudding rice in a sweet rice pudding.

how to store arborio rice

Once you’ve opened your packet, store it somewhere cool and dark and it’ll last indefinitely. Keep cooked rice in the fridge and eat it within 48 hours.
