I don’t know if you have already chosen your main dish for Christmas eve, but here is already a first idea, which I hope will put you in appetite. Both chic and simple, this risotto sweet potato with fourme d’ambert is the small dish perfect for a change from the traditional turkey with chestnuts Mamie Odette. And then, we also have the right not to eat meat and/or gluten-free and it is not for that that we must be content to eat chestnuts and potato croquettes !!! We do a little bit of risotto at home (because we eat without milk for Mini-Miss), but when we do we have fun always, so for me the risotto it is a true festive dish !

Enjoy with a small glass of wine (with moderation of course !) and I am sure that you will be satisfied !
