It may not seem like Spring is on its way but before you know it, the weather will have turned, and we will be shedding our winter clothes. Nothing says “Spring” like asparagus and the grocery stores are starting to stock fresh asparagus.
The social distancing protocols are still in place however, and many people are still anxious and uncertain about when, and if, things will return to normal. Repetitive actions can have a calming effect. Stirring a pot of risotto is something I find very relaxing, and the best part is that you get a bowl of steaming, creamy comfort food, which is also great for anxiety.
You can switch the vegetables in this recipe if you have fussy eaters or if you just want to change it up. Mushrooms, sausage and spinach, zucchini, corn – all are nice substitutions.
