Wild blueberry risotto

The blueberry risotto recipe is a tasty but at the same time delicate first course. Here's how to best prepare it.

Among the recipes with blueberries, risotto is one of the most popular savory recipes for those who love particular flavors and combinations of sweet and savory ingredients. Blueberry risotto is very simple to make and is a great idea to use blueberries between July and August, when they are fresh. For those who want to venture into the combination of flavors, I also recommend trying the blueberry and speck risotto.
