Artichoke heart and caramelized onion risotto

So Tuesday night we had just had 7 layer bean dip - you know, the kind of thing you see at a potluck. It is one of my daughter's favorite foods and she requested it.

Last night we had:

Risotto with artichoke hearts and caramelized red onion
Oven roasted brussels sprouts with lemon and capers
spinach salad with dried cranberry and almonds

You can make a really good vegan risotto with nutritional yeast instead of parmesan cheese. I've been surprised at how nice it turns out. Our other favorite recently is a mushroom risotto. Good stuff.

Tonight we had leftovers. The word I dreaded as a kid but now love as the cook of the house!
