Recipe: Mushroom and Green Bean Risotto

Meatless Monday rolls around again, and this time we’re going with one of my favorite foods ever. I’m gluten free, which means Italian food isn’t always on my side. With risotto, I get to enjoy that creamy and carby (ok, probably not a word) deliciousness without worrying about feeling sick after.
