This super creamy Vegan Carrot Risotto takes less than 25 minutes to make from start to finish! Packed with real pureed carrots, it’s dairy-free, gluten-free, allergy-free, and such an easy recipe to make for a healthy and comforting dinner entree or rice side dish!




  1. Heat a seasoned cast iron skillet over medium-high heat (with the oil). Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to suate for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Now add the carrot puree and uncooked rice to the skillet, stir, and allow the rice to absorb some of the carrot puree for another 3-5 minutes.
  3. Next, reduce the heat to low and start adding the broth. Add 1/2 cup of broth to the rice, stir, and allow the rice to absorb the broth before adding the next 1/2 cup and so on, until you’ve used all 3 cups of broth. (You’ll know it’s time to add the next 1/2 cup when the rice begins to stick, and bubbles form over the cooking rice.)
  4. Stir in the black pepper and nutritional yeast with the last 1/2 cup of broth, continusally stirring this time until your risotto has reached your desired consistency and then remove the skillet from the heat.


*You can dry saute the onion and garlic, but I prefer to use oil in this recipe which also helps prevent things sticking to the skillet you use.

**Serves 4 as an entree and 6 as a side dish.
