Brazilian Coffee Risotto Recipe


Risottos don’t always need to be heavily tasty. This recipe is inspired by Jackie Cameron’s  Spicy Coffee Risotto.

It is a rice pudding type of dessert that will go great with fresh fruit, especially tropical stuff.

Arroz Doce (sweet rice) is a very popular and common dessert is Brazil.

I took the recipe from Ms. Cameron and adapted it to a new version of Arroz Doce with that “al dente” feeling of the Italian dish.
