Tonight's risotto was very flavoursome. Possibly the richest rice broth I've made. I think these were the successful steps.
1. chicken stock with lots and lots of carrots. My Dad gave me some huge carrots from his garden recently and I used one raw chicken carcass ($1.49 from the supermarket), lots of carrots, bay leaves, black peppers, two onions and a head of garlic. Cooked in the slow cooker for about 20 hours.
2. I used lots of roasted garlic in with the broccoli and peas for the vegetable part of the risotto.
3. At almost the end of cooking, I added most of a packet of feta cheese and lots of black pepper.
